I found this video--and previewed it with them. It has five terrific ideas. They liked four of them, but didn't know how to see the "futuristic potential" of where they could take them as a marketing plan or direction. Again, this is where my Fluid Thinking style of teaching comes into play:
- The first idea is like Ironman's Jarvis personal electronic assistant. That was easy enough for them to grasp its potential.
- The second idea is a mini projector. They understood that easily enough too.
- The 3D holographic phone really startled them, especially with its potential for viewing items to buy online and for playing games. (But I wasn't finished with that--and saved my ideas about 3D technology.)
- The tablet-bracelet made them sit up in their chairs. THIS was the first one I viewed with them--and I noted, "It's WATERPROOF." They ALL wanted this one--but I added this idea to the "do later" list that I was building.
- The ultrasonic cleaner also met interest by the girls, especially because they have no dryers in their dorm rooms (or my apartment!).
