    Hey SuMin, I was also wondering which direction you were thinking of going in. From a few of your other blog posts it seems like you may be leaning toward dementia, but I think Anthony's suggestion of incorporating the two ideas together is great. After speaking to a few people that have experienced working with autistic individuals, concentration seems to be a big issue. People mentioned that it is very difficult to get an autistic person to focus and engage, especially when it is in a larger setting (like a classroom). Maybe you could approach the project with the problem of creating something for both conditions, but in the end have it more geared toward one. My hesitation with designing a product for both conditions is present because they involve keeping the brain active for very different reasons (one to keep focus/attention, and one to stimulate memory). I look forward to seeing which direction you end up going with the project!
