Godigi or other mobile usability testing solutions

Does anyone have any experience with Godigi?  We received a solicitation email from them.


It looks like they sell a camera for doing usability tests on mobile devices -- has anyone used it?  Or any other products or services from them?

Product "training" and orientation: anything surprising/interesting?

Looking for some inspiration about how to orient people to a UI in a
novel way. Of course, no training should be required, but there's some
legal reasons why we need to do it for a project. Anyone seen any cool
vids/demos/tutorial modes out there lately I could check out?

Lightbox modal dialog boxes, your feeling about them?

My sense is that as long as it isn't overused, the lightbox dialog
works well for providing essential information and/or interaction
without taking a user out of their primary flow. There are some good
examples in Designing Web Interfaces by Bill Scott and Theresa Neil,
and I've seen additional examples in the wild recently. I think it's a
familiar enough pattern that users understand it right away and know
how to interact with it, though I haven't yet tested it myself.

I'm designing a process at the moment that uses a lightbox dialog at a
critical point in the sign-in/registration process.

motivating new learning - was Re: keyboard shortcuts + contextual menus

This is an interesting problem (regardless of whether or not you agree
about kb shortcuts) - at a certain point, learning comes to a
near-complete stop.

Should iteraction designer produce code... (Form ally: Open Position: Sr. Interaction Designer @ MITRE)

Good point.

Alan Cooper suggests in Inmates that to be an interaction designer you need
to understand the mindsets of the user and programmers of the application
(or something very similar).
