The Owl – Child Guard

Further implementation on our concept, “The Owl” took place this week, presenting our persona, the concept and early stages of prototyping.

Our target users are grandmothers who take care of their grandchildren. However, it is assumed that it can be used from a wider range of people who have hearing loss and are responsible for taking care a baby.
