Research and testing studies

The new mini-FieldLab has already generated a number of enquiries as to what it is, what it does and how it works. Inspired by this several companies came to me with new ideas to combine our research and expertise with their abilities and expertise along with the needs of the community.

In an observation study and a devise testing study the usage of traditional playground equipment could be compared with the interactive Memo. The former study was carried out in cooperation with the local sme Perfroma Sports and has created a new market opportunity for this company.

Also data were collected about the use of the park before and after the installation of the Yalp Memo and of the use of the equipment itself in different weather conditions. Furthermore Ulster University students from different departments designed and tested new games for Memo. Findings and game ideas were fed back to the company.
