The realm between physical and digital world is blurring. People are now relying on digital products for daily tasks. When digital products can be replicated easily to offer similar functionality, the thoughtfulness put into the design is always unique.

Here are two examples of thoughtful digital product:

Today, I use my mobile devices aka phone all day, as per usual.


I turned off the alarm from my phone when I woke up and the first thing I did was to check if there are any important messages on Whatsapp, any update on group projects (since I was away from Singapore during recess week), checking if there are Read more →

The recess week in NTU is full of assignments and people are discussing through WhatsApp. I happen to have a group project at school that day, so I used my phone to contact my friend and go together to school.

Tim designed a non-conventional synthesizer with touch inputs in the form of a box. When audience interacts with the box, their actions will generate a sound which is also visualized on a screen.

What makes it interesting is how the interaction is accessible to anyone regardless of Read more →

Timothy Nohe’s presentation for his interactive touchpad synthesizer shines a new light onto how we can provide a hint for collaboration to take place within an installation.

The most important takeaway I get from Timothy Nohe’s presentation was to make the interaction as intuitive as possible. For example, the touchpad box itself acts as an affordance, giving people the idea that Read more →

Yes, by trying to anticipate user behavior, then observing and testing how viewers will respond (unexpectedly or not)...this is an important factor to consider when designing public art installations.

@ Kaixin

Prof Nohe brought up some very useful points.

One was about designing through the lenses of different demographics instead of from just designers’ own perspectives.

Designers also consider about kids and them being shorter, will Read more →

@ atan048

The visit to Future World was my first time there, but it did not disappoint. As part of the exposure and inspiration-finding for the iLights Festival, Future World consists of many installations which users could interact with. Its use of technology, as per the title ‘Future World’, was somewhat unexpected. The ability to use Xbox Kinect with objects and generating Read more →
