Abstract

In this paper, we described the design process of an individual prototype as it relates to Large Scale Public Touch Interface system design as a whole, and examine ergonomic and usability concerns for Large Scale Public Touch Interface (LSPTI) designs. The design process includes inspirational design, contextual design, storyboarding, paper prototyping, video prototyping and a user testing study. We examined the design process at each stage and proposed improvements for LSPTIs. Results indicate that the ‘color-field’ interaction methodology might be a good alternative to traditional ‘tabbedhyperlink’ interaction in LSPTI implementations.
