Human Technology Interaction means that an individual/ user/ consumer/ participant interacts with a computer technology or a new process incorporating technology (Salminen, 2009). More details can be read via “Human-Centered Systems” (Huang, Jones, & Kasif, 1997). Entity means that it has the following state: first, the origin of the Living Lab as an instrumented environment reminiscent of an in-situ environment for research; second, the Living Lab as a project utilizing Living Lab method is utilized together with other methods; and third, Living Lab as a platform/organization/broker that is engaged in a particular context and connecting parties interested in innovation. Therefore, the Living Lab phenomenon can be defined as:

2. Living Lab: Innovation Through Pastiche Harry T. Fulgencio Etymology 1. “Living Laboratory” discussing the different elements and conditions in the human body as an environment for experiments, Knight (1749) 2. “Living Lab” in the context of an instrumented environment for observing the users, Dr. Ernst Dichter of International Motivational Research (Billboard,1956) 3. Living Labs represent a user centric research methodology for sensing, validating and refining complex solutions in multiple and evolving real life contexts stating that is an instrumented real environment much like an in-situ scientific experiment – attributed to Prof. William Mitchell but found no online documents. 4. Living Lab “idea of a city or a building as a laboratory where designers have hypothesis about what people are willing to do and how they react ” - Professor of Architecture and Media Arts and Sciences at MIT William “Bill” MitchellKnight, T. (1749). Reflections upon catholicons, or universal medicines: With some remarks on the natural heat that is in animals, and the luminous emanations from human bodies.

3. Living Lab: Innovation Through Pastiche Harry T. Fulgencio Proposed Definition• As a human-technology interaction innovation entity utilizing a mix of methods, tools and principles drawn from known disciplines (design, science, etc.) and set in a real environment and in a locale/societal scale.• In addition, the phenomenon operates in a “multi-” mode that is evident by its multi-stakeholders, and multi-discipline, nature which eventually leads to a multi-method approach, and often implemented multi-culturally for internationally collaborated Living Lab project. The phenomenon is within the context of innovation and has multiple applications.
