Watcha Webtoon, 2014

WATCHA Webtoon is a service that recommends a lot of webtoons according to users' taste of webtoon. We applied the fun evaluation experience to the webtoon which is a unique feature in WATCHA. I have led this project not only in design, but also planning to service opening.


Role

It was a single-person team, which allowed me to drive a vision from the very beginning to the actual release. My responsibilities included defining service direction, creating the concept along with a future roadmap.

Vision

Karaoke is a fun place to enjoy songs with friends, but the devices we should use in here have remained somewhat underdeveloped. We have to adjust everything through the controller, which is not noticeable in its flat form, and the keyboard is too large and complicated. Besides, both those who sing and those who want to book a song need it at the same time. I wanted to find a more advanced shape and make the karaoke experience more enjoyable.

Rating system

We observe and investigate the behavior of various groups of karaoke rooms. First, we focused on two situations in which people were scheduling songs or singing songs, and I found out in detail how the remote controller was used and what inconveniences occurred in each case. Based on this, I designed a specific new form of remote controller and developed two controllers according to each situation.

Mypage

It is easy to find the remote control because of its bottom-heavy shape. Everyone in the karaoke room can easily see the screen of the remote control. In addition, the microphone is tube shaped. This prevents the microphone from rolling off the table.

How to use

By using the remote control, people can book songs for singing. Also, the microphone is equipped with functions to control the volume and control the music. Since singers can easily adjust the music as he or she wants without having to use the same controller as the person who wants to book the song.
