A visit to the Lotus Usability lab

After Snapps excellent session I wandered a little around in the research and the meet the developers lab. There I was "lured" by IBM staff into the usability lab. I did a test drive of IBM's productivity tools. The tools are IBM's take on business applications like text, presentation, spreadsheets and projects. Based on OpenOffice the tools a good for the casual office users.
What intrigued me, was the attention the researchers paid to detail and the way I interacted with their tool. We discussed quite a number of features and hiccups on my way to create a presentation. The researcher ended up with a full page of notes. A nice experience -- half an hour of someone paying 100% attention to me
