In collaboration with Philips and fellow student Rooske van Loon, I analysed an existing dataset for patterns in the toothbrushing customs of families. After ideating, creating and testing two prototypes, we found that our concept using interactive storytelling positively influenced children’s personal oral healthcare. The concept consisted of an Alexa skill where family members collaborated to create a personalised story. The interactive stories were set-up to stimulate children to brush long enough, while giving educational tips and tricks hidden in the narrative. The beginning of each 2-minute chapter summarised what other family members had heard prior and each chapter ended with a question to personalise the story, allowing family members to collaboratively decide where the story would go next. The video demonstrating the prototype of the Alexa skill can be seen here.
