15 June 2020 - 2 minute read

Welcome to the thirty-first of Altitude Foundation’s #MicroChallenges2020

Today’s challenge will let you review your prototype and idea!

What’s a Micro Challenge?

These challenges are short activities to help you develop, revise or refresh your coding skills, posted every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Over the next few weeks, we have been running a series of guest challenges, put together by our friend at Newcastle University Open Lab, Megan Venn-Wycherly. You can learn more about her work here and OpenLab here

These challenges work as stand-alone challenges and also as a mini-course which builds together. The first in the series can be found here. This is the final challenge in this course.

Micro Challenge #31

Today’s challenge is to present a product or idea and consider what goes into creating a digital product. You might want to look at previous challenges for inspiration for your product, although you do not have to create a prototype to complete this challenge. 

The Challenge:

Today’s challenge is to present an idea for a HCI product. 

Can you tell us:

  • What your project does? What kind of technology does it need to run? 
  • How does it help others?
  • How does it use Human-Computer Interaction? How does your ideal user shape how this interaction happens?

Review it:

  • Create a Dragons Den style pitch for your product/project. Would you invest in it?


  • Share your ideas with Megan @Mwycher on Twitter for feedback and tips on how to take your challenge further.

We would love to see what you have created! Please send any pictures, videos, or files of your activities to us – either via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #MicroChallenges2020 or to challenges@altitudefoundation.org.
