I´ve had been lucky to be part of a team designing four products for Cisco that has increased sales and won international design awards. My role in Speakertrack 60: defining what the product should do and why, usability scenarios made in 3D Studio Max to investigate spec for components, layout of hardware components, mechanical concepts, concept designs and form explorations.
Example of a camera specification given by the mechanical engineers which I built up in 3D Studio Max to explore what usability this specific camera lens could offer the end user in a given scenario. Much quicker way of exploring technology in virtual space than to build prototypes and rent auditoriums. My role; Build and render in 3D Studio, communicate pro´s and cons in regards of usability.
