NASA Challenge: Astronaut Smartwatch App Interface Design.
- Status: Closed
- Prize: $1500
- Entries Received: 150
- Winner: igcalvo
We (NASA) are interested in the emerging world of smartwatch technology and are looking to leverage this technology to create a smartwatch app that could be helpful to astronauts . The challenge is to design the general user interface for smart watch applications for use on the International Space Station.
Requirements and Guidelines: - Use the Samsung Gear S as a hardware reference for your design - Deliverables should be picture (PNG or JPEG) wireframes highlighting the unique design’s navigation, interaction, layout, look, feel, etc. - This design will be used for some of the following application. (See attachments for examples of all the current versions of these tools.):
1. Crew Timeline application - Will display an agenda view of the timeline as well as a way to easily navigate to another day in the past or future. Currently viewed on Laptop or iPad.
2. Caution & Warnings application - Will display color coded cautions and warnings
3. Communication Status application - Will display whether or not the vehicle is currently able to communicate with the ground through either voice/video
4. Timers application - Will be able to set timers for procedures or until next activity - Design should be for a single app with multiple functions (not separate apps). This general design should: - Direct attention to the appropriate information for a task and increase efficiency - Provide appropriate feedback to actions - Be legible on the smaller Samsung Gear screen - Innovative representations data displayed on a Smartwatch is highly encouraged.
“Igcalvo provided a great user interface concept for an app that ISS astronauts could use on a Smart Watch. This was the winning submission for a NASA ideation contest out of 237 entries.”
