Transcript

  • 1. Google Glass & Context Internship research at Rommert Zijlstra / NMDC Masterstudent / thinkbright.nl
  • 2. New Media Studies aims to research the role of media across the many dimensions of society and culture.
  • 3. “Sight” -- Film short by Eran May-raz and Daniel Lazo
  • 4. [We’re] reducing the time between intention and action. I found a lot of studies that showed access time to your smartphone was really the barrier to use. ! -- Larry Page
  • 5. Google Glass patent application: What it says...
  • 6. ...what it means...
  • 7. ...and where it comes from? Ivan Sutherland - "Head-mounted Display"
  • 8. Thad Starner & Steve Mann
  • 9. Constancy, Augmentation, Mediation. ! -- Steve Mann (Definition of Wearable Computer)
  • 10. Constancy: “always on”
  • 11. Augmentation “...computing is not the primary task.” (Mann, 1997).
  • 12. Mediation: Presentation, filtration, and alteration of information encountered by the user.
  • 13. What about context?
  • 14. "Wearable Intelligence in Healthcare" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnEdaslPtEg)
  • 15. Context.... ! ...is any probable, interpretable, and relevant information. in a situation. ! ...is actively produced by the user and the devices through information flows. ! ...can be regarded as a web and concerns focal and peripheral zones. ! ...contains entities which relate to each other, signifying processes of interaction.
  • 16. + User + ‘Artifacts’ (or devices) Other users, other artifacts. Internet: “Everything”
  • 17. What about designers and their tools?
  • 18. Designers try to get everything right from the start. ! Nowadays we know we can't, e.g. Agile and SCRUM, but designing for context requires a holistic approach. ! The dominant UX paradigm says that we should design for single and simple purposes, but the increasing amount of possible interactions makes this difficult.
  • 19. The kinds of contexts: ! › Sensual: devices extract and uncover information from the environment. ! › Relational: devices and users are connected in ‘artifact ecologies’ (Bødker, 2012). ! › Reciprocal: interactions between services, users, and devices constitute mutual information flows. ! Each context creates another context.
  • 20. How can we do this lean?

  • 22. The Extensible Context Template
  • 23. Like a doodle, or initial exploration of a service.
  • 24. While being structured in which information and interactions are relevant to the experience.
  • 25. Thank you. Rommert Zijlstra / NMDC Master student / thinkbright.nl
