IRIS: Augmented Reality in Rapid Prototyping
MetadataShow full item record
This paper tests a new method for producing rapid, tangible prototypes for information appliances using a system called IRIS. The system allows designers to effectively integrate both the Graphical User Interface (GUI) and other input and output functionality into early stage prototypes. IRIS combines augmented reality techniques with a new viewing solution so that early stage prototypes appear to have screens embedded within the device without the complexity of embedding an actual screen. The initial study tested the performance of a real BT Equinox phone against the performance of a BT Equinox prototype that used the IRIS 1.0 system. The study highlighted certain challenges which were addressed and tested in a second study measuring performance against the same indicators using the improved system. IRIS 2.0 outperformed IRIS 1.0 and almost matched the performance indicators of the BT Equinox prototype. However, further opportunities were identified to improve the user-experience.

Investigation into the insights generated through the application of interactive prototyping during the early stages of the design process Culverhouse, Ian (University of Wales, 2012)The early stages of the product design process are defined as those when initial product concepts are conceived in accordance with a design brief. High numbers of ideas will be generated as designers iteratively develop ...
