HFID :: 99 Luftballons


Hi there, we’re 99 Luftballons - one of several teams from the Fall 2010 class of Human Factors and Interface Design (HFID), an advanced design course at Olin College of Engineering. The focus of the HFID class is to explore how we can improve the interactions we have with things around us through better design of software. The experience involves a semester long group project spent looking at something specific and attempting to create, improve, and innovate within the space.

Our project of choice revolved around the concept of privacy on Facebook, and after a semester long process of ideation, sketches, paper prototyping, user testing and research, reconsidering old ideas, and creation, we came up with the following final design which we hope you will enjoy learning about as much as enjoyed creating.
