Interactive Design: Creating High Tech with a Human Touch
The essence of interactive design is the person-machine dialogue. It’s an exchange that exploits a growing range of compact, sophisticated technologies. But as contributors to this volume make clear, a critical challenge in this arena is determining how hardware can be transformed through design to give a valued human experience. Authors present visions of our interactive future. They critique current trends and products, including Web sites and high-tech medical equipment. They explore the frontiers of interface design. Above all, they share wisdom on the nexus between technology and the human spirit.
