APPLY TO CIID!!
In parallel with the launch of our new website, we are very pleased to announce the opening of the application process for our next generation of students. As an education concerned with the broad potential of design and technology, the CIID Interaction Design Programme is looking for a wide diversity of students. We plan to have a class of 25 people and welcome applicants from all over the world...
Finally, I can reveal a project that I had the great pleasure of working on with two amazing people, Martina + Jacek. Here it is! The ‘Sidetrack’ table peripherally records you as you work in the home, tracing a pattern as you move from space to space. Markers plot this pattern as the table spins, oscillating in time with your movement between rooms. Sensors are placed in the areas...
TOUR CPH Flash prototyping class Another project to add, not in chronological order (obviously) , but here is a video of a quick concept and prototype using Flash - aaaaaaa-aaaaaaaaaaa!
Timm and Frank from RAUREIF in Berlin are our first guest tutors of 2010, teaching us the beauty of Graphical User Interface! In the first day we looked at the ‘desktop as a metaphor’ and how it all came to be around 25 years ago. Looking at my Apple desktop now, its easy to take for granted all the graphical elements that come into play and the journey of their development from the...
Toast and Jam “The toaster has its own language that we all intuitively follow. We studied this common routine of the toaster: inserting the bread, waiting impatiently for it to toast and perhaps popping it manually when we can’t wait any longer. Keeping all the interface elements the same but completely changing the function, we introduce surprise and curiosity in the mundane. The...
PHYSICAL COMPUTING > The Exhibition Our fond experiences with Arduino were culminated into a delightful exhibition of our one week projects. Massimo Banzi, Arduino creator, made the appropriate introduction to the brief, whilst Bill Verplank, Interaction Design pioneer, watched on from Skype! Again CIID awe-inspiring network ceases to amaze! Anders, David, Mary + myself created a toaster...
