Intel – AR UI Testing App

Overview
The research team within Intel's New Devices Group requested a method of pushing images to a head worn display from a tablet for testing purposes. I was tasked with desigining the application that would make that possible.

For a head worn display, how do you send images easily to the device for user testing purposes?

About the Product & Project
Without going into much detail as to what the actual device was, I can say the user studies for this particular device were generally a bit tedious.

Some of the UX researchers had specifically requested an application to push images to the device, to alleviate some of the time consuming aspects of the testing process–also to make testing easier.

This project will give a high level overview of the application designed to support user studies with the device.

Trying Out New Tools


Internal projects are often great opportunities to try out new tools. So in the UX phase for a rough look at the information architecture, I took a stab at using a piece of software called MindNode.

I would say for just loosely brainstorming ideas and then turning that into a way of communicating the flow of an application/site it was pretty useful.

The Application


The application itself had to somewhat follow the flow of how an actual user test would be conducted with the device. So various levels of in-test data were shown to the proctor–which they were able to customize. They are also able to design a test from within the app, saving time in the long run. 

The information provided by the end of the test could be uploaded to be synthesized at a later date.

Material Design


The application was being created for the primary device we had on hand which was a Nexus 9. Considering I usually design applications for iOS, I figured this was a good time to brush up on Material Design principles on Android. Hence the Material Design-meter being dialed all the way up on these designs.
