Change of thought.
After researching the route of navigation and what areas I could target or design for I came to the conclusion that the topic of navigation is pretty well covered. I don't plan on dismissing the topic completely but I am starting to look at a new approach that may be more playful and enjoyable whilst hiking in the outdoors.
Recently I have been walking with my mum and my dog and I would like to incorporate walking with others or with a dog into my research and see where this leads me. I think that there are areas where I could create a playful application and device that links between an owner and a dog whilst on a walk to explore the differences in the experience between the two.
I will also still look at navigation from a different perspective to see if anything comes back full circle and see where i conclude my research and move onto some basic prototyping.
