Urban Interaction Design How I learnt to get out of the office and appreciate the city. Michael Smyth Centre for Interaction Design Edinburgh Napier University, UK @michael_smyth

Selfbuilder :: John Frazer and Walter Segal (1980s)

Haus-Rucker-Co :: Environment Transformer (1968)

We live in a world where everything seems possible and as a consequence have lost the sense of wonder. ! Branko Lukic, NonObject, MIT Press (2011)

Preckam Most :: Crossing the Bridge, Interaction Design Workshop, Magdalena Festival, Slovenia (2009).

An intervention that sought to slow down people’s journeys, to view the mundane and familiar in fresh ways.

Crossing the bridge became a different experience.

The act of taking photographs altered perspectives on everyday routines.

Urban Interaction Design ! The UrbanIxD EU project is about Research and Design for the point of contact between people and urban technologies. ! It has adopted an explicitly ‘design inspired’ method for the exploration of interaction in future hybrid cities. !

Aurora, the Aura City ! Now it is 2113 and this is our second wave of hope. Wearing our new technologies, we have achieved ultimate connectivity: we enjoy augmented experiences as long as we sync our senses with others in proximity. Sharing visual data requires that people look in each other's eyes; sharing feelings can only occur if people actually touch. ! Mara Balestrini

How will we derive meaning from data and how will those meanings inform our subsequent decisions - urban interaction design

What are the products and services that citizens of the near future will use to create and consume data in the Hybrid City?
