    Designing for AR

    Designing for AR

    Augmented Reality has really started to take off, with new AR apps capturing the attention of both users and brands wanting to explore this new experience. But it's still early days for AR, and without established design patterns and interaction styles, designing for AR feels a lot like guesswork. In this episode, Paul is joined by Ryan, Jack, and Maisy to talk about what we've learned from our experience designing in AR so far. What are the challenges with user testing? How can we onboard first-time users to the technology? And where do we see AR going in the future?

Great insights into the leading edge of mobility technology.

Really great insights that are relevant to this with either a casual interest in emerging technologies but also industry professionals.

Really interesting and varied content. Keep it up.

SCP2011 ,

An addictive series on Australian tech and innovation.

Don’t let the core topic of "mobile technology and app development" put you off. This is a very engaging series for anyone in technology and innovation - the secret is that mobile technology and app development are such big parts of today’s tech and innovation scene. Especially in Australia.

A big highlight are guest commentators from some heavy duty Australian organisations. The conversations are very engaging, relevant and always grounded for non developers (like me).
