Spider Robot

Learn Arduino through doing and pay it forward on Github

Concepting, designing, and prototyping to solve
problems and create exceptional experiences

Summary

During my time freelancing at Team One, I had the opportunity to do an individual project on a skill I wanted to build in between projects. I knew I wanted to learn more about physical prototyping, and it all fit right into place when I found this Instructables tutorial on how to make a Spider Robot. However, I found out pretty quickly that I had a lot more questions than answers once I got started in the prototyping process. With the help of Donnie Plumly and Rob Edwards (my mentors), I set out to fill in the gaps with added documentation of my own through a github repository with videos, links, and Fritzings for further context.

Concept

Use AR to animate instructions right off the page for improved context

AR provides two key features that help users further understand their environment. 1) It puts in augmented content wherever the user holds their phone camera and 2) Provides context in the X, Y, and Z axises instead of just two like traditional mobile applications.

Why this works

Use AR to animate instructions right off the page for improved context

IKEA Assembly is a mobile application that uses augmented reality to place animated instructions into the user's environment.  The little details and context that get lost in a picture can be clarified by the user walking around, moving closer and away from the model, and iconography representing key tools and actions needed.

Lorem ipsum dolor

Another needless source of question marks over people’s heads is links and buttons that aren’t obviously clickable. As a user, I should never have to devote a millisecond of thought to whether things are clickable — or not.

Your objective should always be to eliminate instructions entirely by making everything self-explanatory, or as close to it as possible. When instructions are absolutely necessary, cut them back to a bare minimum.
