Design for Tangible, Embedded and Networked Technologies Special Interest Group (tentSIG)

Tangible, Embedded and Networked Technologies (tentSIG)

Convenor: Sarah Kettley, Nottingham Trent University

Contact: sarah.kettley@ntu.ac.uk

The SIG is concerned with all aspects of design as it deals with networked and embedded technologies:

  • Perceptual qualities of networked and embedded technologies, especially the tangible
  • Development of design methodologies for new forms of objects and things (distributed, invisible, emergent)
  • A focus on the person at the centre of future networks, and implications for ethics in design and technology

Examples of related research include calls for user centred development of the Internet of Things prepared by the Technology Strategy Board and the EPSRC; artist and design led projects demonstrated at the TEI conferences (Tangible and Embedded Interactions); and approaches to wearable computing which question the drive for technology to be invisible. This SIG will allow members to engage with the HCI and Interaction Design communities as well as social science approaches to the ‘parliaments’ that generate design outcomes (eg Socio-technical and Science and Technology Studies).
