(Inter)active Environments 4


Interaction designers nowadays have to make decisions about the quality of the relationship between people and machines, which is becoming more important in everyday life with every year that passes. The developments in the field of information technology are changing the way we use computer systems in a variety of ways: objects are being fitted with communication interfaces, sensors, data processing systems and services. They are moving away from the screen, the mouse and the keyboard and offering users a direct, interactive access via haptic surfaces and easy operability to the objects in our immediate surroundings. The things that people interact withon a daily basis are being augmented with new levels and sensations. The change of mode from ONLINE – I’m looking at a screen to OFFLINE – I’m looking at the world is disappearing. It’s not just the form of interaction that’s changing, but also the location, time and context of interfaces. The cocoon of the computer-based workplace is being broken up, and its structures and uses neutralised.
