Multimedia Presentation

Hello all ADMT-blog-viewers,

In this post I have uploaded my two main versions of my ADMT multimedia presentation, the initial multimedia presentation before it was much shortened and the final version. These two videos can be found below as follows. (The videos are from youtube so if you are unable to view it, please ensure that you are able to access first)

Here is the initial ADMT multimedia presentation I have made before it was shortened (12 min 37 sec):

Initial Version V3

Here is the final version of the ADMT multimedia presentation after the shortening of the video above. The music was slightly repetitive as the music for the above was specially composed for that version of the video and cannot be used in this video.

Final Version

And that is all for this post on the multimedia presentation. Thank you all blog-viewers and have a nice day.

Elderly Challenge (part 1)

Hi all ADMT blog-readers,

Well, today is the last day to complete this assignment. This post is written for the questions on part 1 of the elderly challenge based on the report as downloaded from the ADMT blog. The questions and answers of the report are all shown below as shown:


  • FOUR key recommendations
    • Provide different housing options and help seniors monetise their housing assets in order to make the house elder-friendly
    • Make all HDB precincts barrier-free and manufacture all buses to be elder-friendly in order to have a barrier-free society for the elderly and physically disabled to take the buses and move easily around the neighbourhood as well without having to go through narrow paths and other obstacles.
    • Medisave Accounts should be topped up when Government shares budget surplus and there should be family practitioner-based holistic care in order to have a holistic affordable healthcare and eldercare for the elderly
    • Promote more programmes and services and build on strong family ties in order to let the elderly continue to be active and be happy at the same time.
  • ONE recommended way for making public house elder-friendly.
    • We can vary the length of land leases since a shorter length of lease will mean lower pricing in the pricing of houses and higher quality of housing will be possible with the same amount of price. The only difference is that the period of time the house can be owned is shortened. However, this is not the criteria and problem for many elderly and therefore it would be very useful to many of them. They can then enjoy high quality housing without worrying about the price.
  • TWO ways to ensure elderly care quality is affordable
    • Since many elderly become weak and unable to work or move, they can only rely on their children to support them but nowadays, the number of elderly is more than the number of young people, compared to the past. To add on to the problem, elderly who are weaker get sick more easily. Therefore, Medisave accounts should be topped up when the government shares the budget surpluses. This way, the money from the Medisave accounts can be used to defray healthcare costs and hospital bills when the elderly people get sick.
    • Many schemes and polices, such as the ElderShield scheme and the Medisave policy by the MOH, should be reviewed so that the elderly suffering from common chronic diseases who require long-term care has coverage and can withdraw money from their Medisave account for treatment.
  • THREE things I can do
    • Donate money and items to those elderly in need.
    • Visit the elderly often to talk to them. Organise different possible activities for them and make them feel that they are still useful for being part of the society.
    • Encourage everyone to treat the elderly, both in their family and out in the society, well and care for them.
So...that's the end of the post.

Yours Sincerely,
Neo Wei Hong,

Elderly Challenge (part 3)

Here is a very simple design of how the house of an elderly would look like. It consists of a door and 2 windows, a living room with a wheelchair, a corridor, a kitchen and 2 toilets with handrails. It only focuses on a few facilites an elderly would need (eg. in the toilet) and therefore is very plain. The pictures of the model done by using Google Sketchup is shown below:

House plans and room arrangements are original. Toilets, wheelchair and handrails from Google Warehouse.

Essential Questions on the Elderly Challenge

The 5 essential questions, ranked from 1 to 5 (most important - least important), about the Elderly Challenge are as typed below:
  1. What are some of the problems you think the elderly may face and how would that affect us?
  2. Why do you think the elderly need more concern nowadays than compared to the elderly of the past?
  3. Why would the home of the elderly be different compared to us even though they might have lived in the same home for many years?
  4. Technology is improving very fast nowadays and many aging people cannot adapt to our modern lives. How would you allow the elderly to be able to step into the modern society and carry on with their lives with technology?
  5. How would the facilities in the home of an elderly be different from those of ours?

Week 10: Revisiting 'Bad Design' - IDEO's Shopping trolley project

1. Some of the problems of the current design of the trolley is the theft of the trolleys and the safety of children. (22, 000 child injuries a year)

2. Rules include the following:
  • One conversation at a time
  • Stay focused on the topic
  • Encourage wild ideas

These rules allow people to listen to one another while thinking about how to improve on the topic. They allow us to work with one another efficiently and quickly.

3. The team seems to share a common goal and vision. They see the big picture of what exactly they want, how they want it to be and the impact it will bring to IDEO every time they work on a project. I believe this motivates them to work on the project together and complete it, no matter how hard it seems to them be. The team communicates and listen effectively to their ideas and try to improve/combine them, making them very innovative. With this together with their values, they therefore are able to complete all the tasks they are given the way they want it to be and doing projects continuously in this manner allows them to complete very great projects, making them the best design company in the world.

4. We can work together and brainstorm wild ideas, no matter how funny or impossible they seem to be, for they could become common and daily items in the future. We can also learn to accept each others' ideas and improve/combine them to make them a very innovative idea.
