Hello...In last few months of my Study as Interaction Design Student I
was wondering if we really forget that Interaction design is here to
helps us to make our life easier or just to makes it more complex and
I think that we invent new technologies and then trying to
implemented them into each aspect of our life, e.g we design a smart
house to reacts and interacts with its owner ,trying to help the
owner to fulfill his need to be with somebody or his need to
interacts with other people, and then this design mentioned as very
successful project and designers of younger generation trying to copy
this point of view and following same road.
Shouldn't we instead of implementing new technologies into user's
life and writing "technology" as an answer in front of every
questions ,try to think really outside of the Box and help our user
to learn how to communicate with his own world???
I'm really confused ....Can we find a way some days that we give the
users the wide range of possibilities without adding any fancy, good
looking technologies to his life?
