Talkoo at NordiCHI 2008

Friday, October 24th, 2008

Dries De Roeck, researcher at the Centre for Usability Research (CUO), IBBT/K.U. Leuven and participant of the Talkoo workshop, will present his project submitted into a paper “Exploring interactive hardware prototyping” at NordiCHI 2008 (Sweden) during a workshop on Haptic Lo-Fi Prototyping.

Here is the abstract of his paper:
“This paper explores the way the concept of hardware and physical prototyping can be used as an addition or extension to “traditional” prototyping methods used in HCI research. Physical prototyping
allows creating interactive hardware prototypes that are tangible but make use of digital information. This approach appears to be a next step in standard prototyping tools that can be used in research, but is also an opportunity with regard to the “everyday user”. From both viewpoints, there are however limitations to the existing platforms. These possibilities and limitations are explored by a small case study involving the Arduino platform to create musical instruments. “
