How is computational technology shaping our present and future society, and our way of life?
In this course you will put the skills and knowledge acquired in the prototyping course into an applied context. Tangible interaction deals with computational technology and services, as they are part of our everyday lives.
Lectures present you with theory and development of tangible interaction drawn from research and commercial practice. Technologies such as sensors, actuators and smart materials are presented from a perspective of human interaction and use.
You will receive knowledge in tangible interaction design and physical computing, develop critical thinking skills concerning tangible interaction techniques, strategies, and design processes.
You will learn how computational technology can be used as a material for design of interactive systems and get an understanding of how human cognition and motor skills can guide the design of tangible user interfaces.
