In April 2014 the „Night of Science“ took place throughout Austria. Several science institutions participated in this event and presented their current science projects – amongst them, “RelaxedCare” project partner New Design University (NDU).
In this, their first showing at this annual, nationwide event, NDU presented the project “RelaxedCare” to visitors.
The aim was to give visitors a close-up view of real-world science, as hands-on interaction is one of the most important principles within NDU courses. In addition to the visualization of the RelaxedCare idea, the overall concept was presented and various design proposals were shown. Furthermore, visitors had the chance to participate in informal usability testing and to try out the first product mock-ups. The visitors’ feedback confirmed the overall RelaxedCare concept and delivered valuable input for further development of tangible user interface objects as well as functional system components.
