With wireless technology getting cheaper, easy to install, expand and use, it is allowing the internet to be accessed by the majority rural population in India. Intel Wono is a design research and forecast project, focusing on scalable Next Generation wireless infrastructure for entertainment in Rural India for Intel.
The goal was to develop and qualitatively validate concepts related to entertainment, based on ethnographic and needs-finding knowledge, in rural India and the potential applications and feasibility of wireless technological capabilities.
I was the part of the team that led the research, in the rural and peri-urban areas around bangalore and karnataka. I conducted interviews, and translated data into usable insights and further developed them into interactive concepts.
