The Materiality of Interaction: Notes on the Materials of Interaction Design

Mikael Wiberg

Abstract

Computing is increasingly intertwined with our physical world. From smart watches to connected cars, to the Internet of Things and 3D-printing, the trend towards combining digital and analogue materials in design is no longer an exception, but a hallmark for where interaction design is going in general. Computational processing increasingly involves physical materials, computing is increasingly manifested and expressed in physical form, and interaction with these new forms of computing is increasingly mediated via physical materials. Interaction Design is therefore increasingly a material conc ... More

Keywords: design theory, design methods, interaction design, materiality, material-centered interaction design
