Asthma-nauts is a tablet based gamified interactive experience that seeks to engage and educate pediatric Asthma patients and their parents in Hospital Emergency Departments about management and control of the disease. The child is an Asthma-naut(astronaut) who explores an AR universe using a jetpack called the lung machine. Each planet is a module where the child learns about Asthma, it’s triggers, symptoms and treatment through educational videos. The lung machine is powered by knowledge, motivating the child to learn about Asthma to progress through the experience.
Modern sensor technology is beginning to allow for cost-effective deployment of air gesture interfaces in the vehicle. Unlike the current standard of direct touch, air gesture interfaces do not require that the driver takes their eyes off the road, especially when coupled with properly applied auditory or tactile feedback. While emerging systems like Apple Carplay and Android Auto support limited speech commands, the majority of tasks still require visually targeted touch interaction, which poses a safety hazard to drivers.
Like traditional media, social media in China is subject to censorship. However, in limited cases, activists have employed homophones of censored keywords to avoid detection by keyword matching algorithms. This project focusses on designing an interactive, client-side tool that promotes free speech. An iterative design process, involving the inputs of end-users will deliver a final design. In the evaluation of the design we will target the following research question: Does the UI workflow fit into context of use of the users?
