Luxalive; human values in interaction







Products should start to move!

This is a prototype of a reading lamp that moves according to the values an individual strives for. For example, when you like to be dominant, the lamp will follow you like a slave. And when you like to help others, the lamp will not work well and ask you to help him to stay upright.

It is part of a research project that is aimed at finding out how to design for specific human values in interaction to make interactions with products aesthetically more valuable.

The lower movie shows parts of my design process: making quick interactive prototypes from LEGOs connected to Phidgets and Max/MSP on a laptop. A great method!

Beste Ralph,

Misschien zit hier een stukje in voor het tijdschrift De Ingenieur.

Ik vul gedeeltelijk de rubriek het ontwerp in, een rubriek met technische nieuwigheden.

Is het mogelijk contact met je op te nemen, per mail of telefoon?

Mijn email: jrnakkermans@gmail.com

beste groet,

Jeroen Akkermans
