The course will start on Jan 19th at 16.15 in TU5 (1194-1195).
We will have both online and face-to-face lectures in the course. Please see the schedule for details. Changes are still possible.
The graphical user interface (GUI) with keyboard and mouse has dominated in offices since the 1980's. For other situations the touch-screen interaction represents the current mainstream paradigm for interaction with computer systems. Although it has only been with us for about 10 years, there are already clear situations where the "app" model doesn't work. From games and entertainment, through to particular user groups, touchscreen interaction is not the only or best way to interact.
The course is largely composed of a group project, where groups of students (preferably from different disciplines) identify, develop and construct a novel user interface using physical computing (e.g. Arduino).
The course provides both a theoretical and practical understanding of the area of Experimental User Interaction.
