授業の概要
/Course outline
In this interesting course, students will be asked to plan and design critical review videos for video commercials on smart products in the market. For AY2021, the topic will be any SMART / INTELLIGENT PRODUCT INTERFACE of the students' liking. The critical review will focus on how the video is demonstrated technically, potential attractiveness for customers, and reflection on how the commercial could be better designed for different consumer groups.

On most part, students will be working on writing critical reviews and making short technical presentation critiquing short commercial documentaries or product promotion videos on smart products. Later on, students will design a short 10-15 minutes movie on an intelligent product of their liking.
