Over the past two decades Interaction Design as a discipline has flourished, bringing magical moments to everyday interactions with computation.
Over the past two decades Interaction Design as a discipline has flourished, bringing magical moments to everyday interactions with computation. New landscapes lie ahead, as we explore and experiment with interaction principles for embodied and embedded computation, for ephemeral and persistent experiences, for improvisational, multi-device choreographies, provision of short and long term meaning and value, and grapple with the ethics of engagement design. In this talk, I’ll invite us to reflect on what has been learned and on the exciting journeys that lie ahead
