Abstract or Description

We will present to the Object Outcomes workshop, a work in progress artefact created as part of the ProbeTools design research project, which is engaged in producing digital Cultural Probe devices. The ProbeTool Cam prototype is an example of research through design and will be presented at a stage midway through it’s development cycle, allowing those present at the workshop the opportunity to discuss design details still under consideration. The device has an intended future as an open-source design for others to build their own Cultural Probes cameras to use in user research studies, and is so representative of an object built as research and for research purposes.
