ActivityStudio is a suite of tools for prototyping and testing ubiquitous computing applications. It allows designers to incorporate large-scale, long-term human activities as a basis for design, and speeds up ubicomp design by providing integrated support for modeling, prototyping, deployment and in situ testing. ActivityStudio prototypes can run on various target platforms including mobile phones.
The ActivityStudio system was created by Yang Li at the University of Washington. It address the increasing challenges that interaction designers and researchers face in designing and testing user interfaces for day-to-day activities that employ rich contextual information. The project was funded through Prof. James Landay’s NSF grant and Intel donation.
