Abstract:Augmented reality has been getting attention in recent years because of the improvement of the technology development. More and more people are interested in designing AR products. Conducting usability tests is one of the key points that develop a successful product. However, making low-fidelity prototype for AR usability test is a big challenge because most low-fidelity prototyping tools nowadays are for 2D digital products such as websites, or apps. In the current study, we explored two low-fidelity prototyping methods (physical and digital prototypes) which are commonly applied to current 2D digital products in the industry and transferred them to AR. Similar usability problems were found from these two low-fidelity prototypes, which can be seen as using low-fidelity for AR usability test is a possible solution for finding usability problems at the beginning of the AR development. We would suggest that further improved methods for AR low-fidelity prototype such as finding proper materials or combining physical and digital prototyping methods need to be studied in the future as well.
