  • i will show you an untypical project for the this happened format <br /> i am an interaction designer by trade and used to be involved with projects ranging from medical equipment, to consumer electronic appliances, telecom services and for example early research in multi touch tables at Apple in the mid nineties. <br /> <br /> At this happened many experimental and one-off projects have been shown, but I come from a very consumer oriented background.
