AMA is an Android Ice Breaker game that utilizes Wifi Direct to connect people. It does work without a router in the middle. Players vote for uncomfortable questions and one randomly chosen player must answer in public. Players can also add their own questions and create their own database with it.
Space is the place
Parallel Realities is a concept of a mix between Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. In them the whole environment is virtually rendered (e.g. through glasses) but the virtually placed objects are in relationship with reality (as in AR). An exemplary app was created with Unity and Vuforia. Players can track their environment with a smartphone and explore a virtual cave. More in Medium Article.

Interactive Costumes & Textile Sensors
Sonification is a costume for professional dancers that sonifies their dance movements. It consist out of 6 handwoven textile sensors that communicate wirelessly with a software sequencer. Me and fashion designer Aline Martinez created this costume in collaboration with ballet dancers from Altenburg. More details can be found on the project blog. The costume itself and findings from our research with the dancers were published alongside the Dtex conference in Portugal.
Usability Testing & Usability Engineering
For Usability Testing & Engineering we carried out a whole usability testing and analysis of the Cinestar website. We followed multiple usability principles (e.g. Norman), did a requirement analysis, stakeholder identification, use cases, created multiple low-fidelity prototypes and functional mid-fidelity prototypes. We evaluated our prototypes with a within-subjects study and the UEQ questionnaire. You can see some of our recommendations implemented in the new Cinestar Website.
Development of a 3D Navigable Interface for a Touchless Showcase
Bachelor Thesis Creative Technology BSc
With my Bachelor thesis I faced the challenge to develop a new "exciting" interface for the showcases developed by 100%FAT. They use a LEAP motion sensor to control a cursor and go through a presentation. The new interface uses 3D gestures on a 2D vertical screen. It was very challenging for users to build a mental model of this displaced 3D environment. Therefore a user study was conducted with a game to test multiple selection methods. From this a final prototype was constructed and evaluated.
