- 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?
