Kinect for Xbox One

The old Kinect for the Xbox weren't on the marked long time before it was hacked. Because of its easy accessibility it it perfect for interaction design. Now the new version is presented and it looks like an improvement. This video shows you a lot of cool new features!

Flip phone

A very exiting concept phone from Kristian Larsen who is a interaction designer and student at Designskolen Kolding.

A phone that differentiates it self from the norm of a smartphone and incorporates the physical product into the interaction with what's on the screen, creating a unified experience. After the introduction of the smartphone, the industrial design of the devices has converged into all looking more or less the same. Due to the touchbased interaction every smartphone device is now a flat rectangle with a screen on it, making it difficult for both the user and the manufactures to differentiate the devices from each other. This phone is trying to change that. The unique form and unique way of interacting with it, is supposed to set it apart from other phones, but more importantly it's supposed to add value for the user, making the experience of using a smartphone even more exiting and engaging.

The phone has 3 screens that can be transformed in different ways depending on what the user wants to do with it. Having 3 screens on a phone opens up a number of possibilities in dealing with the content on the device. Because people no longer only use their phone as a comunication device. It's more and more used for the things, we usually use our laptops for, but with the limited screen real estate on phones, there are still boundaries for what you can do.
But with the ability to expand your content onto multiple screens or having multiple apps running on separate screens, it's possible for the user to do a lot more productive, and creative things.
Flip phone is based on a concept concieved during a 6 week long workshop done by my self Kristian Ulrich Larsen, Ewa Sendecka, Jeppe Vestergård and Victoria Kusk. It was then developed further for a semester by me Kristian Ulrich Larsen as part of my MA program.

// Tron Legacy Premiere - A Light Session

A brilliant mix of Tron, skateboard and interactive design.

// SMS Slingshot

This is so cool! A slingshot that allows you to shoot text messages up on a wall. Perfect combo of old and new technology. Read more about it HERE

// Janus On The Bridge

Today we showed our final Interaction Design product to an amazing audience. They looked like they liked it and we got a lot of great comments and feedback. We have been working with the thought of making people think about "the butterfly effect" - what you do in the present makes great changes in the future. If your are interested you can read a lot more about the project and see all the video clips from the whole process on the website:

// Arduino to Flash

In one of my classes at the university we have been working with the Arduino. I mentioned this wonderful gadget earlier but briefly to sum up it’s a prototyping unit you quite can program to communicate with other things. It works as kind of a link between your computer and another electronic device. Anyway we managed to make the Arduino communicate with a simple Flash animation. By installing a light sensor on the Arduino we made it possible to move an object in the Flash animation pure magic!....Because the video was used as documentation it's in Danish.
