Furthermore the results highlight that the in the study used physical interaction techniques are not able to compensate lacking visual differentiation.
In a three-week field study we investigated the impact of the sculptures on 14 participants’ running activity, the personal and social behaviors generated by the sculptures, as well as participants’ experiences when receiving these individual physical tokens generated from the specific data of their runs.
A user study with 16 participants revealed that participants believe to remember the 3D visualizations better, but besides the recall of extreme values the quantitative data cannot completely verify this appreciation.
We started with sketches on paper, created first low fidelity prototypes out of cardboard and built the final visualizations with thread, acrylic glass and a laser cutter.
Initiated by entry-level scientists from MDC and Charité, BIH Young Science had its founding event in January 2014. The initiative's goal is to intensify regular scientific exchange and discussion, especially on the level of early-career group leaders in interdisciplinary translational research.
