In the Creative Interaction Design (CIxD) Lab, our research focuses on enhancing creative and quality-centered design thinking especially in the domain of human-computer interaction by exploring and developing new theories, methods, and frameworks, as well as tools to be used in actual design practice. By “creative and quality-centered,” we mean the creativity support that leads designers to think differently through discovery which comes with inspiration, and the quality support that leads designers to think rigorously and rationally as well as meaningfully focusing on people and their values.
We aim for true human-centeredness in designing technological artifacts and services. We target to develop new methods, approaches, and design opportunities for empowering people to experience newly emerging technologies such as smart homes, wearable devices, smart services, and Internet of Things (IoT) in their own meaningful and creative ways.
We aim for exploring, promoting, and designing aesthetically meaningful experience qualities in use of interactive artifacts. We target to develop new theories, methods, approaches, and tools to enable interaction designers and developers to tangibly and creatively explore and manifest invisible and dynamic qualities of interactivity of an interactive device.
