Description of the course

Description of the course

  • This course discusses the state-of-the-art of the advanced immersive visual interfaces and information visualization systems that have been applied and can be potentially applied in design. Hardware and software advances associated with those immersive systems will be extensively discussed. Relevant work in perceptual psychology will also be discussed to address the human-computer interface issues.


Introduction

Introduction

  • As interactive technology becomes immersive, multimodal, and ubiquitous, the emphasis in interaction design shifts to facilitating perceptual cognition and embodied interaction


Major concepts in this unit

Major concepts in this unit

  • Immersive digital environment is an artificial, interactive, computer-created scene or "world" within which a user can immerse themselves.

  • Multimodal interaction provides the user with multiple modes of interfacing with a system beyond the traditional input/output (e.g., mice and keyboard).

  • Ubiquitous computing (ubicomp) integrates computation into the environment, rather than having computers which are distinct objects.

  • Purpose of technology: Understanding, thinking, learning, communication & experience, etc.

  • Placement: Invisible, immersive, tangible, virtual.

  • Interaction: Gesture, touch, voice, etc.


Current industry practices

Current Industry Practices

  • Current Modeling Tools

    • 2D and 3D modeling

    • walk-through

    • 2D media (monitor, paper)

  • Issues

    • limited spatial understanding

    • errors in construction necessitate rework

    • design collaboration constrained by medium

A visualization alternative

A Visualization Alternative

  • A class of versatile and relatively inexpensive alternatives may be developed using Mixed Reality technology

  • Augmented Reality (AR), the insertion of virtual (computer-generated) objects into the user’s view of the real world environment, is a starting point
