P3/EXPERIENCE PROTOTYPING QUESTIONNAIRE

Describe what your interface does in 2 sentences or less.

  • The Healthy Life Watch is worn on the wrist. It has a watch face interface as well as a projection from the inside wrist that laser projects onto the palm of the user’s hand. It is for holding a lot of data and showing menu options but can quickly be hidden internally by touch of a button. The watch face displays time and current health status/ goal objectives.

Who would use your interface?

  • People who are trying to reach health goals such as weight loss, weight gain, muscle gain, or incorporate general healthy eating and exercising habits into their lives.

What would they hope to gain?

  • They hope to gain a sense of control and accomplishment of living a healthy and active lifestyle that can make the user’s life more fulfilling. What is life without your health? For some it is to reach a fitness goal with the aid of this watch as a tool to motivate and guide the user.

What is the context/environment in which people will use your interface? Would it be used in public/private? Alone or in groups?

  • This watch interface is for a quick reference to see stats if one is currently working out or to look at the time. The retracting menu laser interface can be pulled out at any time to adjust or calculate one’s goals. This can be private sensitive information but the user simply projects the menu into the palm of their hand so hiding the menu could be easy in a public area. The user can compare or share their progress with other users or on social media.

What sorts of physical items might a user have to interact with? 

  • The physical item is the watch itself. It is sleek, modern, and subtle so the user will want to wear it at all times for most accurate results.

What questions do you need answered about your interface to see if it is necessary or effective?

  • How can I make the projection menu more tactile? Would an audio component be good to include? So far communication from the watch while a user is working out would be like fuel band LED lights that displayed text.

Experience Prototype Questionaire // Home Security System

Describe what your interface does in 2 sentences or less.

  • My Interface is a home security and alert system that allows the user access into their home by keeping pass code or fingerprint information stored in the interface (the actual door) that then unlocks and open doors. In addition, the system alerts the user when someone is at their door and who it is, or if there are signs of forced entry.

Who would use your interface?

  • My interface is designed for homeowners who want a little extra security without the extra hassle.

What would they hope to gain?

  • Feel more secure about keeping your house locked up. Don’t have to carry around your key or worry about getting locked out. Be notified when you are away of any visitors or possible burglars.

What is the context/environment in which people will use your interface? Would it be used in public/private? Alone or in groups?

  • This interface would be used in the home (or office?). Public or private environments could work. Groups does not apply.

What sorts of physical items might a user have to interact with?

  • Probably just a touch screen. Other than that, it would be automatic or alerts that you hear or see but don’t interact with.

What questions do you need answered about your interface to see if it is necessary or effective?

  • Would people want to be able to open and unlock their doors this way?
  • Are alerts necessary (to know who is at your door), or is i easier to just look/open the door?
  • Would visitors be confused by the interface? Would they not use it?

PSU.GD Screen Experience Prototype Questionnaire

Describe what your interface does in 2 sentences or less.
This interface would inform users about the PSU.GD program and allow them to navigate relevant information pertaining to their involvement/experience with PSU.GD. This interface would act as a way to draw attention through a physical and visual representation of the PSU.GD community.

Who would use your interface?
Students walking near the art building, potential future students, members of the graphic design community, and potentially PSU administration.

What would they hope to gain?
Users would discover information on upcoming events, video content, and get a general idea about the PSU.GD atmosphere/environment in a delightful, fun way.

What is the context/environment in which people will use your interface? Would it be used in public/private? Alone or in groups?
The interface will be publicly available to use by people near the Art Annex. It’s best used as a single person experience to draw users into finding out more info about the design program and what happens within the annex, but can be experienced as a group.

What sorts of physical items might a user have to interact with?
The user will be able to interact with the interface using touch and motion tracking gestures to navigate data and information displayed on screen. There may be the additional options to interact with the screen using your phone to access information on the go instead of in front of the screen.

What questions do you need answered about your interface to see if it is necessary or effective?
Are these interactions meaningful to you as clients/potential users? What types of interactions might you want to see? Would you rather see playful, game-like interactions, or more informative, “meaningful” interactions?

What information would be more important to you if you were a prospective student? What information would be most important to you as a current student?

Future Fridge – Experience Prototype Questionnaire

Describe what your interface does in 2 sentences or less.

The future fridge allows users to track food in their fridge so they can remember to eat something before it spoils or throw it out when it’s no longer good to eat. It also keeps track of whom the food belongs to, recipes that can be made from food on hand, and auto order frequent items.

Who would use your interface?

I would so use it! But other myself, people who have difficulty keeping track of how long food has been sitting in the fridge and want to get rid of bad food before it molds and stinks. Basically people who want a better management system for their fridge foods.

What would they hope to gain?

They would hope to gain more control and accessibility to food safety and organization.

What is the context/environment in which people will use your interface? Would it be used in public/private? Alone or in groups?

Well originally my idea was to have this in homes, specifically ones that have more than one adult using the fridge at any one time (like roommates) but this could definitely be useful in a larger restaurant situation as well. 

What sorts of physical items might a user have to interact with? 

Well users would have to interact with the physical food items, but of course they would also have to use a fridge interface that uses a smartphone support interface. For the Take-Out Tracker, RFID chips to tell what’s in the containers, who it belongs to and dates.

What questions do you need answered about your interface to see if it is necessary or effective?

What features would be the most useful to people (the 80/20 rule)? Are there any redundancies? What kind of information system would make it easiest for people to remember to manage their expired food (or consume it before it expires), alerts, countdowns, etc?

Would we rather fumble for our phones silently with our hands full than ask “Computer, what’s my grocery list?” in the store?

How useful would it be to have all the information you need always hands free? Is that something we want?

Smart Glass Questionnaire

  • Describe what your interface does in 2 sentences or less.

    Smart Glass aids your lifestyle experience at home by giving you reminders, privacy, lighting, and other apps. By controlling through a phone, or through gestures, you can manipulate the glass and have the glass build a profile that knows you.

  • Who would use your interface?

    Homeowners, cab drivers, offices, limos (private vehicles), government buildings, airports, public restrooms, malls.

  • What would they hope to gain?

    A more personalized experience. At home this would be aiding you waking up, or checking reminders and doing things conveniently in the space Smart Glass would be designed for. EX. Your kitchen. A smart glass window in the kitchen may have a quick shopping list in front of you as a reminder that you have to get groceries. In an office setting, smart glass may allow privacy through one direction, and looking through the glass in another direction may give you a list of office duties.

  • What is the context/environment in which people will use your interface? Would it be used in public/private? Alone or in groups?

    It can be applied to both public and private spaces, though it would most likely benefit in a private space. In can work with groups, but if you are a sole homeowner, it would know you more than anyone else. Though the glass would optimize itself if it knows there are more than one profile in the room.

  • What sorts of physical items might a user have to interact with?

    You can interact with the glass through a smart-phone, or similar device. You can also gesture to your window and that can lead to interactions as well.

  • What questions do you need answered about your interface to see if it is necessary or effective?

    Do gestures work? (i.e. swiping to remove something. The motion of getting out of bed changes the Smart Glass in your bedroom, etc).

    Would multiple profiles in a room be practical?

    Can you see this work in both public and private spaces effectively, or just one or the other?
