MMDI 405 - Innovative Interfaces


The notion of the digital environment transcends the concept of the computer as we know it. These addresses and environments, although supported by digital technology, are non-computer-like in many respects. Building them calls for changes in the choice of interaction devices (using touch, voice, gestures, and possibly just user’s intent as a basis for interaction), shape and size of computers (no boxes, but interactive surfaces), their location (floor, wall, pocket), as well as change in content structure. Using cross-disciplinary data from cognitive and computer sciences and social psychology, the students in this research/studio course focus primarily on the design and development of innovative ways of interacting with digital technology.
