User Experience Design for Google Glass
Instructors: Cecilia Abadie (33Labs) & Jaime Levy (JLR Interactive)
This is a 2.5-hour, hands-on workshop geared toward digital product designers who are looking to experiment and play in the sandbox of wearable computing. Note: This is NOT a workshop for developers to geek out on code.
The following topics will be covered:
the distinction between wearable computing and Augmented Reality (AR)
what the Glass user experience is like TODAY
basic overview of the design elements such as the timeline, cards, bundles, and card options
the process of UX design for Glass for digital designers without access to the product/API
the best ways to leverage it's unique capabilities
Attendees will then each get one minute (due to time restrictions) to experience Glass for themselves.
Next, the following activities will be conducted:
crowdsourcing the top 5 attendee concepts based on both technical feasibility and innovation
doing storyboard scenarios on whiteboards to identify user interface elements
creating wireframes and/or Photoshop mock-ups of the Glass UX events
prototyping using the Glass Sim emulator
Networking to follow at the nearby Angel City Brewery.
