Tactile City

Teachers: Karmen Franinovic and Max Rheiner This course will address the complexities of designing haptic experience in public space by the means of interactive objects with haptic feedback. The interfaces should be context-aware and can be public objects located in the urban context or personal mobile devices. We will explore phenomenology of embodied interaction in studio setting and through field research as well as test the prototypes in the streets of Zurich. During the course the students will:
  • design sensory experience by the means of non-visual feedback which is suited to movement based interactions: movement, temperature, vibration and other.
  • conceptualize and test mobile applications in form of wearables, public furniture and context-aware products.
  • develop adaptive technology that suits different contexts. For example, students may design feedback that varies for different user location, the changing intensity of sound and light, or the variation of user’s personal data such as heartbeat or galvanic skin response.
  • explore the embodied experience and social interactions that emerge during the use of their products.
