This talk is about how, as Designers, can we move beyond the need to
design a screen into everything and embrace physical interactions? Now computing is becoming ever more ubiquitous & entwined into our lives, surely an acceptable solution isn't to cover our world in icons & screens. There is an emerging trend of beautifully crafted products that are becoming the face of complex systems, yet they have no screen at all and still provide a rich suite of interactions that are easily accessible by the user. What tools are available to us as Interaction Designer’s to give us the courage to step away from our wireframes & start designing beautiful, engaging physical interactions?

  10. 10. Our experiences are formed through stimulating a combination of our 5 senses
  11. 11. This is one sense... What about the others?

  13. 13. Stimulating the same sense differently, affects our perception of the experience Bernard Lahousse Food Pairing Food = Interaction https://vimeo.com/86171854
  14. 14. digital touch vs physical touch context of use drives method of interaction
  15. 15. How can we (IxD’s) start to think outside the screen & design sense rich interactions?
  16. 16. What if we remove the screen?
  17. 17. What if we remove the screen?
