Web Interface Design – Tangible Intuitive Interactive Interface

Web, Webdesign, Webdevelopment, Wordpress


Web Interface Design beter bekend als web design. Nu sinds deze opdracht voor de Universiteit van Gent volledig rond nieuwe interface draait.
Dacht ik bij me zelf laat ik een beter naam voor zoeken. Zo vond ik de Web Interface Design uit.


TIII, Tiii staat voor Tangible Intuitive Interactive Interface en is een project van de richting Industrieel Design. Hun doel is virtuele wereld tastbaar te maken.


In today’s world, the use of digital media (internet, television, GPS, mobile phones, etc.) has taken a dominant place in our daily lives. Although there is a great deal of innovation in the technologicalfield, the focus is too little on the interface that nurtures the interaction with the user. Just think of all the frustrations and limitations when using remote controls, keyboards, mice and joysticks. That is why there is a need for interfaces that better connect the virtual world of electronic media with the more tangible, physical world we live in.

A broad range of existing sensors and actuators can be successfully implemented for designing better interfaces (for instance the iPhone with multi touch screen, the WII controller with accelerometer/optical sensing and Kinect with 3D camera). Companies lack the knowledge and tools to explore these domains, thereby overlooking the chance to enhance the interaction between user and product although innovations on the level of interfaces lead to a direct impact on the user experience, followed by an increase of the customers satisfaction.

With this research project we want to focus on tangible, intuitive, interactive interfaces (TIII) that consist of several crucial elements like a tangible form, an intuitive use, an interactive technology and the interface with a software application. It is our goal to start a platform that supports the design and development of these new interfaces or controllers. This platform will offer a network of partners (educational institutions, companies and organizations) and relevant tools (methods and a toolbox) to explore the possibilities of TIIIs and support the design process. On our website people can find an overview of the state-of-the-art and the results of some cases done by the students. A crucial component in the design process for interactive interfaces is thepossibility for rapid prototyping that allows test hands-on interaction with users. Thanks to new electronic prototyping platforms(e.a ArduinoPhidgetsProcessing, ), it is easier to rapidly build interactive prototypes for the exploration of tangible intuitive interactions.
