Scene Generator:

Random actors and activities, with my compliments.

The scene generator creates random actors (contexts, people, and design) and activities. It has a wide range of uses. Educators can use it to randomly generate content for a project or assignment. Practicing designers can use the scene generator as a brainstorming tool to help them consider a wide range of aspects that can affect what should be designed. Anyone can use it as a party game.

Have fun designing for rich experiences!
