Meaningful interactions

The possibilities of technology are numerous and new ones are added every day. The usability and acceptability for people however often still needs improvement before we get the best benefits out of the new technologies. We want to turn emerging technologies into technology that is widely accepted and used. Into applications that deliver a meaningful interaction for people. 

The desire for personalized solutions provides a great opportunity for increasing our competiveness in a globalized world, as local players have the edge over far-away competitors. Highly customizable manufacturing technology is needed. In this research platform (more background information here) we test how new materials and emerging technologies can change people's lives and interactions with other individuals, systems and organizations. We design valuable and elegant products, services, generative systems, modes of production, or combinations thereof, with emerging materials and production techniques

Through this research platform we generate foresights by:

  • Testing in living labs how new materials and emerging technologies can change people’s lives and interactions with other individuals, systems and organizations
  • Designing valuable and elegant products, services, generative systems, modes of production, or combinations thereof, with emerging materials and production technique.
