Moving Thru Mixed Realities
A workshop on designing for mixed realities. Using both play and physical exploration of places, this workshop first provides a human-centered model for design for personal perspectives and perception. The workshop then shows ways in which existing UX and Service Design tools can be augmented to manage product development when users are encountering multiple layers of information thru augmented and virtual reality technologies.
This workshop is about becoming comfortable with the extended spaces we all live in now and then how we can successfully manage products for users who are moving thru Mixed Realities.
