I was preparing lecture for my students ( HCI ) about ubiquitous and wearable computing. We do a lot prototyping in classes, so I thought it would be nice to make some Google Glass App prototypes this week. That’s how I got the idea to make tests with paper prototypes and came up with this (ridiculous) proto-gadget.
Well, this is very LOW fidelity prototyping! But it’s fun – and also funny.
Here are some other FUN prototyping suggestions:
Ok, now… And here are some that you could actually use :
AR glasses (especially Google Glass) didn’t blend well into social, everyday life (remember GlassHoles video?) but they are useful in medicine, engineering and field works… and I did’t want to mention military but they have been used in military’s research and industry (actually these things were invented there like most of tech gadgets) . But….There might be some interesting applications in the kitchen as well!? We’ll see. In the beginning people laughed to those who carried around their cell phones, talked in the street … and look at us now.
