Physical Design Meets Interaction Design
There are concepts found within architecture and industrial design, fields that have exists for hundreds of years, that carry over to the relatively still fetal stage of interaction design. Considering and looking into these concepts, and combining them with the potentials intelligent and programmatic solutions provide can provide better design solutions for your end products. The audience will leave with information on places to look for inspiration for interaction design from physical design.
