Playful augmented products workshop

Interaction Design students at the Oslo School of Architecture & Design participated in a three-day Touch workshop where “the brief”: was to _design a playful, exploratory or characterful RFID interface_. The emphasis of this workshop was on exploring the relationship between material, tactile properties of physical objects and digital interaction through RFID and required material experiments made to a high level.

“This video”: shows some of the student’s process, starting with a conceptual session where ideas were sketched on paper and enacted through props. A process of making followed in the wood, plastics and clay workshops where the products took shape. Finally the products are presented as experience prototypes.
