cognitive task logger
Project Description

Cognitive Task Logger is a research enablement tool built to help designers do field research and user shadowing.


The tool lets researchers track time that users spend on various cognitive tasks. The data is collected automatically and is saved as a csv file on sd card.

Cognitive Task Logger is a custom device built in a shape of a toy to foster playful environment and create empathy with research participants.

The device is a rapid prototype built with paper, bare conductive microcontroller, 3D printed case, and copper tape.

Interface is easily customized by replacing the paper-based front panel with a new print.
