Intel RealTest - Design for Virtual Reality & 3D Camera
Wearables, Virtual Reality, 3D Camera... Emerging technologies are shaping our way of living. As a designer, I am curious about how design and technology act upon each other. And I am constantly practicing my design and thinking for future through real projects. Here is a showcase of projects I have done with Microsoft and Intel for course Rapid Design for Slow Change.
A wearable app that integrates with Cortana to facilitate learning based on unique student needs
Microsoft UX Team gave us the challenge:
How can an intelligent digital assistant support the needs of students in 2020?
Through our user research, we found that one of the biggest problems for collenge students was students are not treated by professors and teaching assistants (TAs) according to their own unique needs. So we designed Microsoft Uni: a wearable app integrated with Cortana, which syncs students learning data with professors and TAs to facilitate learning. I created storyboards and app interfaces to illustrate the design concept.
Conbining RealSense 3D Camera and Oculus Virtual Reality for hardware testing.
Intel UX Team gave us the challenge:
Come up with a compelling use case to use the Intel® RealSenseTM R200 camera.
Intel RealSense is able to sense a depth image along with an RGB image. Microsoft Kinect was one of the first consumer versions of this technology. Through our exploratory research and brainstorming, we found that testing on hardware prototye is a pain in the industry, cause prototyping hardware can be time consuming and expensive.
What if we do not need to build an actual prototype but still can test on the hardware product concept?
