About me

I am an international student and I am a graduate student from China. This semester is my last semester at the University of Queensland. As a result of the epidemic, I am currently in Thailand. I will attend the first two weeks of the course remotely.

About Physical Computing

I want to learn how to work together, how to work in groups, and how to interact more. And, I'm curious about what skills we need to use in this course. I worry that I lack good ideas in the design process. I have encountered this problem in previous digital prototype courses and social mobile courses.

Previously, I learned two courses with Lorna, one was digital prototyping and the other was social mobile. So I am familiar with Lorna's teaching methods.

About the challenge

1. Would you add anything to the challenge?

Cultural background, living habits, subconscious, etc.

2. Why do YOU ​​consider this a challenge for the future?

Regarding the Human-environment interactions section, I think that the use of smell and smell is difficult to explore in the future, this interaction method has higher requirements for the use environment. If you use taste in this way, you need to consider hygiene issues, because the disease is imported from the mouth, and you must ensure that users taste a clean, non-toxic taste. Using smell in this way requires that no other flavors be mixed into the air.

3. Based on your discussions, generate a short description that captures the key elements/considerations of the challenge. Add an example to help illustrate the description.

I think this part of Human-environment interactions is mainly about future interaction methods that will change. With a large screen and keyboard, the use of the mouse will be less and less. People will begin to interact with other things in life, and the way they interact will change dramatically.

4. Examples may be historical (ie. As an impetus for change or example of change).

The use of AR, VR, and Google Glass is to get rid of keyboard and mouse operations. In addition, there are installations in some public places that use light and shadow interaction methods.
