Physical Computing Week 3 Observations: Elevator Buttons

For my observations this week, I decided to take a look at how people interact with elevator buttons.  The model for elevator buttons is pretty uniform across all elevators, and hasn’t changed much in my lifetime, so everyone I’ve observed seems to feel very comfortable and confident using them.

We Continue reading Video & Sound Week 3 – ITP Then: Sounds of the 21st Century

Initially, I planned on updating last week’s self portrait so that my eyes followed the mouse, my hair Continue reading ICM Week 2 – Sketch Documentation
