Google Glass for Athletics Research

Expanding on Out-of-the-Box Functionality.


For ten months I was part of a University of Washington research team that focused on exploring how to use Google Glass in an athletic setting. During our research we conducted interviews with a wide variety of athletes, observed athletic training, and conducted usability tests for Google Glass. We then went on to synthesize our data via card sorting and pulled out key artifacts to begin design.

Our biggest challenge was designing something that leveraged Google Glass functionality, specifically the hands-free and visual dimensions. We landed on designing a weight-lifting application for Glass. Due to the confidential nature of the project I cannot display designs here.
