    Abstract

    The objective of this project was to explore human computer interaction issues related to mobile computing as well as document the differences in programming on the Apple iPhone™ and Google Android™. The solution code allowed users to select a colour they wish to reproduce on a theatre stage with both intelligent lights and near-matches from a dataset of available coloured filters. Two interface prototypes were created for the two mobile devices along with an independent solution comprising of Python code and a comma-separated value dataset of theatre gels. Testing of the Python code was completed at the New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth. In conclusion, the Apple and Google operating systems are compared and a reflective report suggests what further action could be taken to produce a full working system.
