Abstract

This pictorial reports on the Play Poles prototype that was designed as part of a design ethnography investigating the Internet of Things (IoT) as a resource supporting outdoor play amongst groups of children. We use illustrations and annotations derived from video data and analysis to depict gestures, actions and social interaction that are significant in understanding the qualities of the Poles as a play resource. We argue that simple functions and direct, real-time control can be used by groups of children to support fun and creativity in outdoor play, whilst also highlighting opportunities and challenges in designing IoT play resources.
