#Luiis_3x ] Design for discomfort: new products could force people to stop being so lazy: Im... [ #Luispokel

Laschke, a PhD student at Germany’s Folkwang University of the Arts , has been working with a team of students to design what he refers to “pleasurable troublemakers “; designs that are meant to make people stop and really consider their options during moments of choice, but don’t force people to do things against their will. For example, if people know that the elevator is going to stop one floor ahead of theirs, they can always punch the button for the next-highest floor, but it’s likely that many of them will get a bit of a kick out of being bullied by the elevator to get out and walk up 8-10 stairs for their own good.
