Harvard Nasa S.U.I.T.S

As a team of Harvard design and engineering students, we responded to NASA S.U.I.T.S’ 2019 design challenge to develop a Microsoft HoloLens user interface (UI) for astronauts completing extravehicular activities (EVA’s). As NASA embarks on missions to the Moon and Mars, astronauts will have to operate more Earth-independent. Taking a human-centered design approach, we made a UI prototype that extends astronaut cognition and perception via a robust informatics system. Features included a navigation system and “Guardian Angel Mode” designed to serve as a portable Mission Control Center when latency prevents immediate communication with Houston.

As a team member, I co-developed the Augmented Reality (AR) space suit information display using Unity/C# for the HoloLens.

After two months of collaboration, we traveled to Johnson Space Center to test our prototype and receive feedback from NASA engineers.
