Designing Technology for the Real World Human Condition.

Designing interactive technology for the real world human condition is incredibly hard. While I often work with advanced AR/VR Interfaces assuming many human conditions are working properly. Humans in the real world are not always fully equipped for this expectation. The above reddit post is my testimonial and experience when helping my 97yr old Grandmother cope with Quarantine in a Nursing Home during the COVID-19 Pandemic. I essentially designed a video conferencing solution so she could properly visit given her very special needs at this age. I realized after creating this, that I learned a lot about the human computer interaction that I didn’t expect. That catering to someone like my grandmother with such extreme limitations was an extremely good learning experience.
