Joseph La Delfa is an industrial designer doing his PhD in design research, where he has developed a drone that responds to bodily movements, to be used as a meditation tool for the practice of Tai Chi. Although he's not a scientist, I find out what design research is, and the similarities and differences to scientific research.
