It’s the last week of summer research, and the Google Glass Team is placing finishing touches to their project. Grace and Lily thanked their collaborators at Boston University for completing the week long user studies with Glass. Back at Wellesley, the pair is excited to have finished conducting eight user studies with biology summer researchers.
With all three Google Glasses safely returned home to the HCI Lab, Grace and Lily are polishing up their protocol application. Grace has just incorporated voice commands, so when users nod their heads down, a microphone will be activated and respond to the commands, “next,” “previous,” and “cancel.” Meanwhile, Lily has also successfully added a bookmark feature, which enables users to mark their place in the protocol. With an upwards swipe, the background color changes from black to cyan, offering a visual cue of the step the user last completed.
The team has also created a lovely poster for the summer program’s poster session, and they are eager to present their findings at the end of the week.
