Technologies

I have been involved in the design of several technologies, most notably those created within the OutsideTheBox project. The website also offers a portfolio overview of those technologies together with the associated participatory design processes. I create playful physical artefacts that are purposeful and meaningful to people.

Three pictures next to each other showing a drawing of the interaction with Adaja, its technological interior and a photo of the final prototype in action.

There are three pictures next to each other again, one where the two new controls form an S together, one showing all parts of the system (the two controls, a colour changing lamp and a box for the additional technological setup, and finally a picture illustrating a child experimenting with a fidget spinner.
