Video of the week: Biophilia expert explains how to pick the right office plants2 November, 2023
In the past weeks I have been working on the next important step of the Ommik development – a workstation configurator. What is it? And why is it important? Continue reading to find out these and other questions.
A workstation configurator
My next step in the Ommik’s development is to be the actual configurator of the home office workstation. The idea behind it is pretty simple: a user will select the style, purpose, location and add-ons of the home office they dream of and type the budget. When they click on GENERATE NY WORKSTATION button, the input is going to be transformed into a prompt, which is easily understood by a generative AI. The prompt is the USP, as I am working on it to make sure it generates the exact image, I want it to.
The budget is an important part of the algorithm. It will take the number from a user and find the products withing that budget. Now, it is interesting to add, according to my own experience, it is nearly impossible to have a home office with a budget below 300 EUR. Therefore, the limits are 300 to 5000 EUR.
The is also a nice touch. I offer to select 4 options: working (from home), gaming, studying and all purpose (combination of everything). The workstation setup could be different according to how you want to use it. Therefore, these are the options.
I came up with 12 interior design style options. Each of the styles have their own attributes and characteristics. I want to set the Nordic style as a default on purpose. Ommik is a Nordic brand, therefore it is important for me to have this option pre-selected.
The location is the room, where the home office workstation be located. For now, I only have 4 options: living room and bedroom (these two are the most common ones), then study (a dedicated room for working from home) and other (basically, any other rooml).
Here I have a list of Add-Ons. There are accessories, decorations and storage space. For the beginning, I won’t be offering the products in these categories, but this is a pramount for the future development.
What do you think about the workstation configurator? Is the design and the form intuitive? Is it easily upderstandable? I would like to hear your feedback!
