  • The way we interact with all the small and big machines we handle and inhabit in our daily lives tells us a lot about our personal relationship with technology. What do we actually want from technology and are we really getting it? Which side is more adaptive and compensates for the flaws of the other; Man or machine? A lot of these questions are being answered with interfaces we build to interact with the technology we invent.
