User Experience Everyday around 3pm, Jamal comes out of his school

User Experience Jamal wants to hang around in his neighborhood, but its known for crime and he concerns about his safety

User Experience Jamal likes to play video game, but he does not have any device at his place. So when he has free time, he goes to the GameStop to play his favorite games. He also enjoys the social environment there

User Experience However, there’s so many people waiting to play, most of the time he just waits there and doesn’t get a chance to actually play

User Experience One day, Jamal blah blah blah.... OH! hears that there’s a “project Start” is in our new game station community called “project Start” center! in his local community center

User Experience game station x4 Jamal decided to go check this new thing called “project Start” at his local community center registrar Showdown stage community couch snack bar game station x6

User Experience Jamal visits the “project Start” for the first time

User Experience As he walks in, the staff of “project Start” recognizes that Jamal is new, greets him and explains the system of “project Start”

User Experience After a quick registration process, Jamal gets his project start membership card

User Experience Now Jamal can play the games he wants anytime under safe environment

User Experience He decided to play wii fit and plays with the one at the same level as him. Jamal enjoys the healthy competition and social environment project Start presents

User Experience Jamal makes more and mote social connections as he comes to project Start more frequently.

User Experience As Jamal earns 1,000 points, he calls a showdown to move to the upper level. Usually when there is a showdown, all the others gather around and watch

User Experience Jamal beats the opponent and he gets cheered up by his friends as he moves up a level and gets 500 “food dollars”

User Experience With his 500 “food dollar” he decides to celebrate with his friend by ordering pizza (20food dollar) from the Whole Food snack bar

User Experience Jamal really enjoys the whole experience at the project Start, and he’s also very happy that he now has a safe environment to hang around with his friends. He can’t wait to eventually become a mentor and hopefully get a nintendo DS

Future Ideas could team up with with to create a program to be set-up inside hospitals. Games created for the system could replace Wii Fit in a compact version of the arena. would be beneficial to as it would create a fun and encouraging environment for children with cerebral palsy to interact with one another, while still practicing their physical therapy.

Future Ideas could team up with to set-up an arena at the camp for troubled youth. The system would be for the most part, similar to what is setup in community center, but differ in the fact that it would be a 'fast-track' version. Because is a weekend camp, the points needed to call a showdown would be modified to fit a one day schedule. So users could experience the entire system, showdowns, gaming, and levels in a 5 hour period. would be beneficial to as it would teach troubled youth about healthy competition and encourage friendship, promote technology, and fun.

Future Ideas Games Once Project Start gains a a certain level of prestige, Nintendo could possibly create games specifically for the project. Games which addressed the specific needs of users while still being technologically advanced and fun.

Shortcomings o Limited space for the set up o Since users interact with their virtual characters, the program may not foster the social skills and interaction initially intended o Malfunction ofgaming systems and consoles o Parents may not be keen on sending their child to a program based on video games o Nature of competition may cause fights amongst users o May become over run with users because it is a free service
