Alternative interactions with IVIS interfaces

A Research Through Design approach to automotive HCI design       In recent years, changes in the car industry have brought about increased driver- distraction, which is the leading cause of fatal automotive accidents. A major cause of this can be attributed to the introduction of touchscreen in-vehicle information systems (IVIS), which allows drivers…

Mood Ring

A speculative exploration of emotions in technology In this speculative design project, we explore how people interact with and reflect upon emotion-sensing technology throug a prototype inspired by the color-changing mood rings that many are familiar with from their childhood. The prototype analyzes one's emotional state by utilizing EEG and a machine learning algorithm. Our…

Exploring Shock

This project set out to investigate how the body is affected during the occurrence of shocks, with a focus on the relation between micro-perceptional shocks and larger shocks. Founded on and inspired by affect theory, soma-design methods and research through design, I explored the physical reactions to shock, as well as try to implement them…

Thermochromic reflections

In this thesis, we investigate how we can use thermochromic textiles - a textile material with color-changing properties, in an interactive design, in order to explore the material composition between computer and textile. We want to uncover how we can practically apply the properties and qualities of the textile material in a concrete interaction design.…
