Abstract

At the end of June 2010 VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland launched the VTT Ihme space in Ideapark shopping centre in Lempäälä, Finland. VTT Ihme functioned as a development environment for the IHME research project (MIRACLE in Eng. - Make, Imagine and Research Applications for Computerised Leisure Environments) from 24.6.2010 to 15.8.2010. In cooperation with business and consumers the environment focused on developing new experimental services and aiming to generate possibilities for businesses and consumers to participate in the service design process. Our focus was on presenting and developing new user interface solutions and new types of service content to the ordinary shopping centre visitors and on involving them in the co-innovation of new applications and services. Ihme-environment presented a globally unique trial for new kind of co-design approach: showroom and living lab in same context. It showed proven ability to enable a low threshold user research environment obtaining feedback on innovative technology from ordinary people and other stakeholders in an open public environment. It reached a great number of visitors and enabled a large amount of direct involvement and feedback from potential consumers for designing new products and services. Direct contacts and interest to co-operation with potential partners/companies were obtained and naturally visibility in media for innovative design approach was also attained. Not only did the users find it informative and important to participate on the co-design, every single one of the visitors who answered our survey, found it entertaining and fun at the same time. The trial provides indispensable knowledge for the future phase of concepting co-design environments based on both potential consumers and employees experiences on functionality and outlook of the environment. IHME research project takes place on 1.1.2009 - 31.10.2010 and is segmented into three minor sub projects that offer distinct perspectives to examine methods and applications of ubiquitous computing from human-driven perspective: Developing and deploying new deliberative methods for designing services and environments (DELLU); concepting, developing and introducing environments for open co-design of new services and products (UBIT); and developing services and products by paying attention to the preferences and needs of consumers with novel kinds of profiling solutions (TASSUA). VTT's partners on the IHME research project are Ideapark Koy, Luova Tampere, Aurinkomatkat, Neuroagent, Lempäälän kehitys, Nokia Corporation and Tekes - the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation.
