Physicality from the sidelines: potential hurdles and solutions in the development of novel interaction styles

By John V.H. Bonner


This paper provides a pragmatic argument on how best interaction designers and researchers can influence and perhaps even guide the interaction design process of the ever accelerating digital revolution. This is done through important lessons learnt through the development of a set of design tools for a major consumer manufacturer. Principally, idiosyncratic organisational factors need to taken into account when introducing a new design approach\ud or methodology
