  • RewindStorytelling and Communication Device for the Elderly

    Undergraduate ThesisIndividual Project

    Exhibited at Design 100ID KAIST, 2013

    Rewind is a new concept device for storytelling and communication for the elderly. Combining analog and digital experience, it provides a unique experience of recording their memory, or stories and sharing them between the elderly and with other generations. It encourages the elderly to fulfill their social needs at the same time contributing on lives of others.

  • 01 Recording a story and printing instantly from the deviceRecording a series of self-photos and sound, and print out the photos right afterwards. Using mirror, it is easy for the elderly to adjust the camera on the desired angle.

    User Research

    I conducted user research in four different ways by observation, Interview, Focus group interview, and Photo study on different groups related to the elderly and the elderly themselves.

    Key Implication

    From needs taxonomy, it was able to define eight keywords derived from the user research. The keywords were substituted into Maslows Hierarchy of needs to categorize into different levels. Then, I developed hexagon diagram to visualize the seven needs of the elderly.

    I feel bored and left out from the society. Its a long, continuous meaningless days.

    I know how to spend my time and feel comfortliving alone, but I cant deny the loneliness

    I have to work for a littleprofit to live. I cant afford time and effort for other part of life.

    I cannot live normallyby myself. I have to relyon others to be outsideor do other activities.

    Concept Development

    Four personas were developed to represent the different needs of each group. Then, it was expressed in the value of life graph to find hidden needs for the design concept. The final concept was developed by making connections between the needs.


  • Design for communication between elderly with social needs and elderly with physical needs in daily life

    Visible Light CommunicationWireless Communication technology that uses light that is visible to humans

    1. The elderly with social needs takesphoto with camera, smartphone

    3. If the elderly with physical needs approach to the light, the photo frame automatically shows the data received.

    Technology Base

    Shape form as RadioGives feeling that transmitting visual data instead of sound data

    Double-way CommunicationNot only receiving, pulling the handle backward willsend the data simply without additional process

    User Scenario


  • User Scenario l Rewind, 2013


  • G-Saver 2nd Generation

    Cooperated with NGO Good Neighbors, local social enterprise Good sharing

    KAIST R&D TeamJan, 2012 - April, 2013

    Winner, Social Venture Competition Asia 2012Finalist, Global Social Venture Competition 2013

    G-Saver project is run by NGO Good Neighbors, providing heat accumulator for Mongolian nomad housing Ger. I worked for this project as a designer and coordinator of research and development team from KAIST. Going through optimization of heat preservation and the structure of G-Saver, we were able to make improvements. The usability and thermo-efficiency of the initial G-Saver increased enough to be sold in the market. The second version of G-Saver is commercialized as of winter, 2014.

    The team consists of 11 students (3 engineering, 3 industrial design, 5 business majors). We did not distinguish the specific area, and worked together. However, specifically, my role was to coordinate the communication between our cooperation organization Good Neighbors and advisory experts. As a designer, I worked on improving the assembly and installations reflecting the user feedbacks.

  • Local Contexts

    Winter in Mongolia is severe and long, and heating is needed for nine months during a year.

    Excessive heating expenses - Over 70% of annual income

    Intense cold causes health problems - Respiratory disease, musculoskeletal disease - Shortening of life time (WHO Mongolia Country Cooperation Strategy
