UseLab

The UseLab (Usability Lab) is primarily used for usability research on consumer products, but is also perfectly suited for focus group research, interviews, and paper prototyping. The lab’s interior matches that of a living room, with a comfortable couch, cabinets with books, indirect lighting, and a television – therefore the Use lab is also called the ‘living room’. The lab is equipped with ceiling mounted cameras, microphones, and two one-way mirrors. Behind the one-way mirrors is the observation and control room where all behaviour and audio can be recorded either analogue or digital. All necessary software is available on the PCs in the observation room to analyze the behaviour and performance of the participants. The lab has two entrances, one for the participants and one for the experimenters.
