Kiki: Future Remote-Care Experience

In this project, I speculated on how design can shape our society in the future through the relationships between people, products and places positively.


Working closely with cancer research experts, I notice remote healthcare might become a trend for post-cancer living in 2030. However, It largely depends on technology. So how to bring the new form of cancer care to people who have difficulty using tech becomes critical.


The outcome is Kiki, a platform that works as a companion for its users, interacting with and motivating the user through friendly suggestions and conversation. Each guidance incorporates local information and user’s preference with cancer experts’ advice globally, keep the users healthy without bringing the context of ‘cancer’. The collective intelligence generated by Kiki helps to advance global understanding of the experience of those living with cancer as a chronic condition.

Work as group to explore the future

The project has two-part. Part one is group work with two other designers and experts from the medical area, co-create a future vision of cancer care in 2030. The outcome is a Brand from the future: Dinaci--- offers discrete intelligent kitchenware, integrating healthcare into everyday life. The Part one also set the foundation of my personal exploration in part two of how can design bring the new form of cancer care to people based in 2030.

Final Outcome of the Future experience project

A video showing the user experience I designed in a full resolve of both functionality and interaction with the design from multiple stakeholder perspectives and the context of use.

User experience Storyboard

User experience Storyboard

A user storyboard that shows how Kiki collaborates with different stakeholders and gathers information for a better post-cancer living experience.

Thinking through making

I used a design technique called 'thinking through making' to help myself to understand the user's life. By creating the user's living environment, I can put myself in the user's shoes.

UX Interaction Mockup

I test my idea with peers by acting as Kiki and communicate with the users.
