We are thinking about building small and simple usability lab. The goal is
to minimize the cost, retaining capabilities to quick test some own ideas
and (especially) results of changes we made. I am wondering about basic
equipment we need - and current list is: one PC (well equipped: fast hdd, a
lot of RAM and so on), one camcorder, some mousetracking software... and?
To say it clear: we are not going to make eyetracking tests at the moment.
We just want to create a place where we can run some basic, scenario-based
tests, detecting (and documenting) main usability problems.
I will be grateful for suggestions, especially pointing important additional
hardware or specific solutions (including software details).
