The first iteration focused on technical feasibility and laying out an initial foundation we could build on. We split the project into three core sections : Framework Calibrations Experiences
Iteration 2 – Migrations
Migrations Aspect 1 – Demonstrating the impossible is possible – Guided – Verifying abilities Our user tests established the validity of checking and exploring the visual abilities of a participant in the following order:
Iteration 2 – Motivation
Motivation We have identified four underlying motivations for the project. Whilst these build atop one another, we try to isolate them conceptually to help us manage our limited development resources.
Iteration 2 – Concepts
Concepts In Iteration 1 we had a participant flow which went through a series of calibration scenes covering different aspects of vision (e.g. Monocular vision present? Biocular vision? Depth perception?…). These scenes were originally focused on building up a calibration object which could describe the participants visual abilities, to then calibrate the “main” part of the…
Iteration 2 – Architectural changes to the framework.
This is an open design document, explaining the rational behind the evolution of the framework. With more experience and evidence, many of these elements may change in unpredictable ways – it is a work-in-progress. Previously:
Issues with static IPv6 addresses being reassigned
For reasons I don’t still fully understand, my local backup server decided that it was no longer going to be reachable from the outside world. Along the way to fixing it, I learnt a little more about IPv6 which might be worth sharing…
User Test 2 – Mrs. S – Alternating esotropic strabismus
Today’s second user test was, again, extremely interesting and rewarding. Our second tester – Mrs. S – also has a similar form of strabismus to Mr. C – alternating strabismus. Although we are still unsure how the app should handle the more complex form of alternating strabismus (where the eye which falls to the side…
EyeSkills – System Philosophy
What is the guiding light which we are following while we build the EyeSkills framework? You can find out more here…
User Test 1 – Mr. C – Our first tester, our first breakthrough!
What can you say when, after a single two hour user testing session, your test subject comes back to you the next day, with a video showing he can demonstrably choose to see straight, and in 3D?
User Test 1 – Mr. C – Alternating esotropic strabism
Todays user test was absolutely fascinating. During our initial tests we established that Mr C has a less common form of strabismus than most – alternating strabismus. This is a situation we consider “beyond our initial design specification” but we continued and were rewarded with shocking surprises and inspiring insights!
