TickTockRun: Towards enhancing communication in runner families
Paper i proceeding, 2016
Past studies have shown that advanced amateur runners often find it hard to communicate the difficulties of training frequently to their friends and family. Given that orchestration is required to effectively include running in everyday routines, tools for facilitating communication are likely to offer improvements. This paper presents TickTockRun-a design exploration of how tracking data from running and daily activity sensing can stimulate discussions within a household. We designed an interactive artefact for the living room that visualises running training and daily activity. It offers visual and audio representations of activity to trigger discussion and allows family members to access activity information. We also propose an in-the-wild study plan for TickTockRun.
