For many years interaction design has been mostly about web or mobile UIs. Increasingly however, we’re putting screens on all types of devices, from refrigerators to coffee machines, and everywhere from museums to shopping malls.
Our users are no longer just sitting at their desks while using our designs. As a result, many of the conventions we rely on fail us in these contexts. If you’ve ever seen someone struggling to buy a ticket at a metro station, that is one of the reasons why.
In this workshop, we’ll learn what principles we can copy, what we should change, and we will take a hands-on approach to prototyping and designing for these new exciting contexts.
