Prototyping for tangible user interfaces
Arrangementet er afholdt
(blev afholdt torsdag, 25. januar 2007, kl. 14:30-16:30)
Heather Martin – will explain the objectives and vision of the new institute. One of the most important aspects of the education and research that will take place is 'hands on prototyping'. Heather will explain the value of prototyping in the design process an will show examples of tangible user interface projects and prototyping platforms.
Bio: Heather is one of the Co-Founders of the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID). Heather Martin is a Product Designer and Interaction Designer who has worked in London, New York and San Francisco. From 2004 to 2005 Heather Martin worked as an Associate Professor at Interaction-Ivrea, where she taught physical interaction design and worked on client projects with Sony and Artemide. From 2000 to 2003 she worked at IDEO in London as a Senior Interaction Designer and Project Manager.
'Talking to the hand' is Oren Horev's investigation regarding shape-change behavior in digital objects and tangible interfaces. Oren's interest in shape-change began with an effort to develop a technique to knit Nitinol wires into a structure that can change shape. This produced a dynamic skeleton layered with a textile skin that deployed when triggered electrically. Through a series of explorations, observations, working prototypes and video scenarios, 'Talking to the hand' attempts answer the question: why should objects change shape and what is their potential as an interactive medium?
Bio: Oren is a Industrial Designer from the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea. He holds a BA in Industrial Design from Bezalel, The Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem. His research focus is on smart materials as a base for interactive objects and garments, microclimate systems for the body, and interaction with organic environment.
