Project: This project was done at the end of my sophomore year in my first UX class, human computer interaction, and was my first assignment in the class. The goal for this project was to find a control in your daily life to redesign, and present the controls design problem, current state, and future state along with any prototyping and process materials
Control Redesign Choice: Sony MDRXB950BT
Problem: Buttons over all have poor tactile feel which often causes user error and makes hands free navigation difficult.
when receiving a call, the headset enters a state of loud ringing no matter the volume
Current State Diagram
Solution: Eliminate all buttons and design a gesture based interactive navigation system that ensures the user can complete the designated action in a pleasurable way.
