    Interface and New Interactive Systems




    Developments in theory, technology, the marketplace, and business suggest that we are entering a period of accelerating growth in the variety and pervasiveness of interactive products. Integrated medium technology platforms are emerging in entertainment, design, engineering, manufacturing, and education. Delivery systems range from television screens to bodysuits. 

    In the world of “traditional” computers, user-interface design has become a discipline with established, sometimes contradictory, theory and design principles. These new interactive technologies underline the need to develop and extend the domain of user interface design. Panelists identify and discuss ke interface issues for new media and technologies.
