The visualizer could be so much more, right now it just looks cute for about 10 seconds then forgotten – It’s meaningless as far as I cant tell from a usability standpoint. Through building my own overlays I have a suggestion to make it useful:
Make the visualizer “superimpose” in the design space layout with a visualizer toggle or something. Why should be be fairly obvious, however:
- Having the ability to see precisely where things are in relation to the overlay.
- Having the ability to see where the rectangles should be placed when building overlays.
- Eliminate the need to size/cut and print prototypes while building overlays.
Those 3 reasons alone would make the sensel app far more approachable, practical, and effective by making good use of the visualizer.
