The design critique has been immensely helpful in terms of getting me on the right path. Many of the people I talked with have great feedback. They loved the simplicity of my project, my goals I set to achieve, and have specific I was with my topic. However, overwhelming complaints came with the lack of labels for the icons located on the top, right of the product. There were also three major suggestions for where to take my project next. It was suggested that I focus specifically on making a very easy to use router, it was also suggested that I apply my design philosophy for the elderly to other technological products, and thirdly it was proposed that I develop other products to work with the router. I am most in favor of making products that work with the router, and more specifically medical products. My project currently attempts to cover a range of issues, but the medical issue seems vastly more important that the others. Because my project relies heavily on being an anchor in the remote monitoring healthcare industry it is absolutely essential that I gain a good understand of this industry, how it works, how remote monitoring it setup, and what remote monitoring capabilities there currently are or may be available in the near future. Most importantly I need to see if there is even a place for my product in that industry. They may have already solved the problem I propose to correct, in which case I will steer myself more towards communication and entertainment.
