On-going [re]search and experimentation has lead to further development of our Hybrid Design Tools to support individual or collaborative design and engineering interaction. The Loosely Fitted Design Synthesizer (LFDS) we present here is a synthetic design environment based on interaction with mixed-reality. The user-centered (human-in-the-loop) approach in conjunction with computational assistance affords intuition, creativity, stimulates interaction and triggers ambiguity in iterations. The user has real-time control through the use of a special interface and allows intuit decisions in choice-architecture. The real-time high definition video captures convey a time-line and iterative listing of these instances whereas the interface allows synthesizing the iterations. We demonstrate collaborative experimentations present users' performances on tangible ideation tasks and describe our initial efforts to integrate the results and findings into this hybrid design tool system.
