Tap Mixed Reality Glasses

TAP, an augmented reality tool, offers a gamified and customized experience for task analysis and video self-modeling that enhances the lives of children with autism and other cognitive disabilities.

Role: Design Leads with Bob Waite

Summary of Project

TAP enables educators and therapists to use mixed reality glasses and voice commands to add step-by-step prompts and flashcard graphics to a task list. The flashcards can be moved around in augmented reality space, and feedback is provided only when a step is completed correctly. As the child completes each task, video clips are created and organized for use in task flashcards, and task success is tracked on a dashboard with suggestions for improvement.

Backed By Research

TAP was designed through competitive analysis, ethnographic research, and user testing with consultation from special educators, speech pathologists, and occupational therapists.
