Squirrels at Techweek Detroit

Last Thursday and Friday, Squirrels attended #techweekdet

We got to talk to some cool people with great ideas (like our new friends at YikeBike and Uber), watch the Launch Competition (congrats to the winners, Cribspot) and even attend a silent disco at the ‘beach’ in the middle of the city!

Check out some of the pictures we took throughout the weekend. Thank you Techweek. We’ll see you this fall!

Squirrels in Action: Reflector and UX testing

Barry Briggs, user experience consultant, featured Reflector on his UX Blog earlier this month. 

In three separate mobile usability tests, Briggs used  Reflector for iOS screen mirroring to send video to his Mac.

He incorporated other software for added functionality:

  •  Silverback, a guerrilla usability testing software for designers and developers to capture his desktop
  • iSight audio and video 
  • A device-mounted webcam to capture the user’s hands and screen interactions

Check out Barry’s post for more video demos of Reflector in action,  and his blog for more UX testing and tips.
