Augmented Reality

Human factors methodologies at work...

User safety and comfort is key to AR and VR experiences. As a specialists in virtual reality ergonomics, we help designers of AR and VR headsets by applying our ergonomics knowledge and inviting designers to  put themselves in the shoes of their users. By engaging in human-centered design, designers can connect with the people they are designing for and create products that users love. Combining this business strategy with data through user testing, we ensure that the users needs and expectations are #1 priority.

Simulation technology, like augmented (AR) and virtual (VR) realities, are no longer just for the world of gaming. These awe-inspiring systems are now being used in a variety of different training scenarios like those required for hazardous job sites, surgical rooms, medical diagnoses, and even to train astronauts before space missions.

New Products Can Sometimes Mean New Problems​

The world of simulated environments is new for users and designers alike. What kind of new factors do these products bring to use and how can human factors mitigate some of these complications? AR and VR need human-centered design to engage users and to make design stages more productive.
