We changed our concept a little. Our focus shifted from changing clothes to promoting events. So the primary functionality for the user is not to try some clothes on but to get information about events. So instead of just displaying clothes projected on the user we will display some event data and display clothes fitting the event. So for example a football game is promoted and the user gets to wear a matching jersey. A nice-to-have functionality is to manipulate the background so that the user stands right in front of the stadium.
During christmas holidays we were not so productive as we are usually. Nevertheless we managed to draw a first storyboard. Thanks to Tim and his Omnigraffle skills we have even a nice digitally made version of it. We plan to improve this storyboard once we are done with our interviews, whose results will be available soon here. Of course we are already planning the low-fidelity paper prototype of our application, where we will demonstrate and test the GUI and so on. Stay tuned.
After todays lecture we met for another brainstorming to find a final idea for our project.
First, we had several ones like these:
- window cleaning game: cleaning windows like back in the past with PS2 EyeToy
- mosquito slap game: mosquitos displayed on your body, which you have to kill
- clothes overlay application: application displays bitmaps on your body, which you can change with gestures
- traffic-light-waiting game: while waiting on a red light, you have to fulfill different tasks, while a clock shows the time until green light
We decided for the clothes overlay application. Based on the date, daytime or weather the default clothes can change. For the purpose of public information it could be possible to relate the clothes also to events which take place near the location where the public display is.
Next we will work at the use-cases and their storyboard, don’t miss it!
This is our blog for the final project of the Mobile and Physical Interaction lecture at the TU Berlin.
Our group consists of these four guys:
- Tim (Computer Science)
- Julius (Computer Science)
- Sebastian (Computer Science)
- Erik (Audio Communication and Technology)
What we have done so far:
Our first idea was to make a cool public application that allows interaction with a Google map. But it seems that there is no comfortable way to use the Google API together with Processing and Java. So we think we will implement a nice little game now. You will hear more about this A.S.A.P.
