In the User Experience Testing Lab, we got a chance to see some really cool stuff. First and foremost, we got to see Intel's robot that helps them measure touch screen experiences on virtually any touch device.
Then, we walked over to the sound room that they have setup for creating reproducible sound environments to test devices for noise cancelling and noise reduction. They also have a mock-up human bust that can both talk and listen via microphones and speakers to simulate a person talking into a phone while listening to someone on the phone with surrounding noise. A really interesting setup.
Following that, they showed us their display calibration methodology as well as their Radiant Imaging colorometer setup.
Note, the blue plate is attached to a plastic hand that is designed to keep the device in place for the colorometer to properly measure the display's color gamut depth.
All in all, it was a very cool tour and we really enjoyed the experience and kind of wish we had all of this in our testing lab to test different devices. I would even take up robotics programming just so that I could program my own tests.
