The Ericsson UX Lab has been prototyping and testing gestural interaction solutions with data:
“This spring we worked on how to visualise and interact with data. One issue that we focused a bit more on is that of interacting with a material indirectly, such as when you present data as a projection on a wall and want to interact with it. There are of course touch sensitive surfaces to project onto (or through), but we focused on a passive surface only acting as a screen. This lead us to start investigating more physical ways of interacting with the presentation in question.
During recent years we have seen a fantastic development when it comes to sensor technologies of all kinds, ranging from grass root DIY solutions such as Phidgets and Arduino to commercial products such as Microsoft Kinect. We decided to investigate two interaction solutions – One based on the Kinect and the other on a Phidget distance meter. These trials were done rather quickly and with the only aim to get a better understanding of what these technologies could provide us with and to reflect upon the possibilities they could bring to our future work.”

Can behavioral change address local energy issues, raise people’s awareness energy consumption issues, and directly support non-profit organizations at the same time? With the Nice pilot of the CITYOPT project, we have seen strong suggestions that it can. It also suggests that the sense of belonging to a local community is a strong motivation for […]
Patient-centricity is one of the defining issues facing clinical trials in the pharma industry. The past few years have seen a growing awareness by pharmaceutical companies of the importance of patient-centricity – but they have also illustrated that not everyone is clear on just what patient-centricity is, or how to achieve it. After using UX […]
Every year, the Energy-efficient Buildings (EeB) Public Private Partnership (PPP) publishes the EeB PPP project review – a round-up of energy-efficiency projects that have been co-funded by two European Commission schemes. This year, the print and digital booklet design was done by Experientia, in particular by our talented visual and interaction designer Dohun Jang. Experientia […]
One of the things we do here at Experientia that really sets us apart from other UX agencies is behavioral modeling. Our cognitive and behavioral models go beyond the standard customer journeys and personas (both useful tools, and often preliminary steps to behavioral modeling) to create frameworks that can be used to make people more […]
