Zoom link: https://kth-se.zoom.us/j/63124774359


Before the session, please watch these videos: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1fXIP4ZD4-bKfQsnLWxP393DFs2xYno6G?usp=sharing

They are video prototypes for the HumanScatter project. More info here: https://www.digitalfutures.kth.se/research/demonstrator-projects/humanscatter-demonstrating-rich-and-batteryless-human-powered-interaction-using-backscatter-communication/ 

Video prototypes are excellent ways to convey interaction ideas. During the session we'll discuss how you can share your design concepts through UX videos. We'll go over storyboarding scenes, using low-fidelity props, and utilizing easily available filming methods to bring your ideas to life. 

Following a short presentation, we'll ask you to do some hands-on work to test out video prototyping for yourself!
