Artefact and UW: “There’s A Thing For That”

Posted on Jan 3, 2011 in Education, Industrial Design

I initiated, planned and led a collaboration between the University of Washington’s Design Department and Artefact. Combining Artefact’s expertise and interest in both industrial design and interaction design, Artefact wanted to both task the students with the exploration of “interactive objects” as well as to challenge the status quo and current presumption that every daily need “there’s an app for that.”
We posted two articles here and here that talk about the project in a little more depth.

So, what do you think?
