BIG seminar: Design for Peripheral Interaction
Interactive devices such as mobile phones play an important, but often needlessly obtrusive role in everyday life. This can be prevented when people could interact with these devices without focused attention. This talk will address ‘peripheral interaction design’: interaction design which can effortlessly be used as part of people’s everyday routines without inappropriately attracting attention. I will present a number of peripheral interaction design examples which were developed at the Industrial Design department at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands.
