Hybrid World Lab slides


This week at the Hybrid World Lab at Mediamatic I have given five presentations related to NFC, physical, tangible, social interactions and design methodology.

Here are the slides for each of those presentations. They are PDF files.

Designing between things, places and people
An introduction to some of my work and current work in the Touch project. Looks at the design briefs or research questions around RFID and NFC.

Introduction to NFC phones
A quick introduction to NFC phones and their applications.

Physical hyperlink technology
An overview of physical hyperlinking technologies and some spatial annotation projects.

Tangible and social media & Mobile social software
An overview of some tangible and mobile social software projects.

Context, scenarios and prototyping
Some ideas, directions and guidelines for making ‘hybrid world applications’. The importance of choosing context, people, places, things and situations.

Nicolas Nova’s slides are here.

    This is absolutely amazing, Timo. The participants couldn’t have had a more thoughtful and creative introduction.

    Guess I’ve really got to step up my own work for the project now!
