IMPRINTS Project Paper Prototype And Framework of the booklets

Cross stitch wristband idea, the wristband would replace the original passport. And owner’s bio metric information  would contain in the wristband. And the pin could have some relative information about flight and airport such as boarding information, update flight information and airport information. What passengers need to do when they go thought each stage is just offer their bio metric information and then verify the wristband, when the biometric information in wristband and the passenger’s match each other, passenger could pass the stage.

The sketch is the framework for the booklet. It compares what’s the different  when a international student go thought airport system without the wristband and with the wristband. The booklet is for the final exhibition.

IMPRINTS Project Prototyping Data Analysis

This is the data analysis of verification. On the left side is A to F, 6 international students’ choice. In order to measure those different verification methods, the methods at top could get 9 Points, and last one could get 1 Point. The bar chat at right side is the score every method got. There are comments from participants at up right side.

This second picture is the information I got for the test of the wristbands. In each stage it reflect both identity needs and personalize needs. At right side, comments are from interviewees.

IMPRINTS Project Prototyping 2.0


Based on the technology already exist, a product could  combine some identity methods, passengers only need to carry one wrisband which might have the information of boarding pass, passport and so on.

Instructions of prototyping:

1) Verification

list the methods in order from 1 to 10 which is most suitable for you.

2) Wristband

check in→security→waiting→boarding→flying→landing→luggage collection→custom

Based on each of the stages, pick up the information you think is most relevant.

Test prototyping with participants:

1) The small blue cards are the verification methods. Participants would be asked give a order of those methods from the easiest acceptable to unacceptable method. The reason to do those is to get the feedback from passengers about different verification, and the most convenient way might be used in the wristband verification in the development of the project.

2) Participants go through each stage of airport system, and pick up the relevant information they need in different stage. And then participants would be asked to explain why the information they think is important.

The reason doing this rough prototype, is by making a physical object to discuss and the potential outcome with the international students. In the next stage of the project, data i got would be analysed, and create a personas and scenario to make the project be understood.
