User-friendliness has become a clichéd concept, but the usability of an IT-based system depends on how easy it is to interact with the system. This is the case for user interfaces of traditional Windows/Mac systems that are based on interaction with windows, menus, mouse, etc., and also when it comes to new interaction forms based on pressure-sensitive monitors, found in smartphones, tablets and large display solutions including SmartBoards.
The new interaction forms integrate sensors and actuator technologies, camera tracking and multi-touch displays that encourage different forms of motion-based interaction. The interaction often takes place in an interplay with the physical environment – also called augmented reality. There is an increasing tendency for IT to become embedded in our physical environment, as well as the development of physical installations with IT incorporated is increasing dramatically.
We develop user interfaces on traditional platforms such as Windows PCs and Mac computers, and on mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, display solutions, etc. We have expertise and extensive experience with interaction design and usability in different settings. We also design physical devices with embedded IT. These can be furniture, textiles, exhibitions and different installations.
It is crucial to us that the integration of IT into the environment takes place with the prospective users in mind – both when dealing with information, experiences, entertainment and exercises for the citizens. Therefore, experiments with software prototypes and spatial installations are key working methods for us as we develop the technology with active user involvement.
