Human-Computer Interaction

Our goal is to develop a new concept to support the interaction between the human and the computer, a concept that accommodates the particular characteristics of human interaction and cognition (Embodied Cognition) as well as the latest technological developments for the comprehensive and universal availability of computer technology (Ubiquitous Computing). We call our new approach Blended Interaction. With this term we mean a novel blending of forms of reality-based interaction and communication with the technological opportunities offered by computer-aided interaction and communication. Achieving this blend depends on the right mix and on the proper design approach. To read more about this, see Research - Focus
