Concept video

Let visitors experience tours from multiple perspectives, in customizable directions,
and at their own paces — and enable people passionate about a place
to create and share their unique stories and insights.

    Low fidelity prototype

    We created a paper prototype and captured it in POP, a paper prototyping application. Three users tested the prototype; we observed them complete the tasks and collected feedback.

    Medium fidelity prototype

    Using feedback from our low-fidelity prototype tests, we refined the UI and UX and created an interactive medium-fidelity prototype with inVision.

    Heuristic evaluation report

    Other students in the class ran a heuristic evaluation on our medium-fidelity prototype. They compiled a report which gave us feedback going into our high-fidelity prototype.

    High fidelity prototype

    We took the feedback from our heuristic evaluation, and with the help of JavaScript, HTML, and the Google Maps API, built a prototype that looks like and almost works like the real thing.

Project Management & Design

Kevin's brainchild, unGuided is an app that lets visitors experience a tour when, where, and how they want created by a variety of sources. There is no starting point, no set path, no required perspective—and no guide. The user can arrive at his or her destination, and using a mobile device’s geolocation, hear and see unique, crowdsourced stories about the places they visit—built by anyone with knowledge and passion for a given space.
