Exploring Natural Interaction: Using Real-World Materials to Inspire Interaction Design

LOCATION: Auditorium 1, TEL, Ernst-Reuter-Platz 7, 20th floor

SPEAKER: Marius Brade (TU Dresden)


Designers are often challenged to break free from the traditional interaction design for mouse and keyboard to create new and compelling user experiences for natural user interfaces. We conducted several workshops to inspire and provoke critical reflection on interaction and interface design for natural user interfaces based on physical substances that are used in everyday life. The method used in these workshops has been developed as a hands-on alternative to the usual way of focusing on problems and solutions first in order to create new interfaces. We employ a playful experimental approach to generate ideas regarding visualization and interaction. In this talk, I describe our proposed method for exploring natural interaction and provide examples from our previous workshops.


Marius Brade is a Ph.D. candidate in Media Design at the Chair of Media Design, Department of Computer Science at Technische Universität Dresden in Germany. His PhD program is a specific co-operation between industry and academia. The partner from industry for his research is the User Experience Research Practice at SAP Research. Before starting his doctoral study, Marius obtained a Diploma in Media Computer Science from the Technische Universität Dresden (2009). Next to his studies Marius attended several courses at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden. During his studies he developed a deep interest in how people think and memorize information.
