Abstract: The use of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) technologies presents one option to face the challenges of recent and rising care needs due to demographic change. User acceptance of those technologies plays a major role for a successful rollout and sustainable technology usage. Empirical research approaches (e.g., online questionnaires) in this area are often impersonal and abstract for the participants. In contrast, the current study aimed for a playful qualitative user study approach in which people empathize with different necessities of support and evaluate desired technologies and respective usage motives as well as barriers. The paper presents first research results of the new undertaken research approach, which was tested with six older participants (aged between 50 and 81 years of age). The results show that the playful approach enables a personal assessment of different assistive technologies and technology-related usage motives and barriers when a prototype testing is not feasible.
