Revaluating our early designs

To evaluate our early designs, we thought the questions were left best answered by users who were seeing the system for the first time, as opposed to us, who were impaired by our perspective as designers. We sent out our designs to our HCI Class, along with individuals in our circle, who we thought would give honest, unopinionated feedback. We had considered even contacting elderly individuals to get more “complete” feedback, but due to time considerations, we were not able to.

Designing the Physical Interface

Brainstorming

In designing our physical prototype for the Atlanta History Museum, there were a large number of things we had considered. We first thought of interfaces that our target group is most familiar with, and things that often come naturally to them.

Designing the Actual Interface and Device

When designing this physical interface, we wanted to do it in two phases. The first phase is designing the actual physical device, subsequently creating the screens that the users will see to concretize those designs, and finally bringing it all together with the full demo.

Designing Screens That The Users Would See

When designing the final screens, we wanted to take full advantage of our form factor and allow the users to make use of the wider viewing angle as compared to a traditional screen. An example of this can be seen below:
