Question 1.4: Design for you

The Question 1.4: Design for you homework for Week 1 of Design: Creation of Artifacts in Society required me to design an artifact that addresses my user experience gap of a solution that supports and encourages an efficient and affordable contactless ticketing system for public transport by creating a visual expression of the design as well as a simple prototype of the artifact.

ARIG: A prototype camera rig for recording contextual tablet and mobile phone screen activity

ARIG is a camera rig for recording activity on and around the screen of a tablet or mobile phone screen. The concept for ARIG came from my need to record my experiments with marker and location-based augmented reality experiences.

In this example, ARIG records a simple 3D cube augment produced with Blender 2.62 and Aurasma Studio.
