Research for designing a skiing app

Level 5 Multimedia and Games Design students undertook research for a Ski App they are developing as part of their studies. To help understand what skiing is all about they had a Ski lesson on the dry slope in Gloucester. Grasping the pain that skiers go through every time they put their ski boots on was an important part of the day.

Great weather for our research trip to establish the ergonomic issues with mobile devices and skiing!

After we’d taken off those agonising ski-boots we all looked quite cheerful, even poor Chris with the ice-pack after a contretemps with the ski-tow! Nina remembered that she goes skiing regularly – every 20 years!

The tutors, Nina, Paul & Lewis, joined in by taking part in the activity as well! The best Ski App’s will be displayed at COMX14 on 1st May 2014. See http://comx.glos.ac.uk for more details.
