Since we experience the world through our senses, it’s time to start designing for them. This practical guide shows you how new technologies can enable devices to encompass a fuller range of human experience through a new approach: multimodal design. This approach takes advantage of how we use our senses to understand information and interact with the world.
With this book, you’ll explore the technologies that can be used to enable interactions for different senses, like gesture, voice recognition, and haptic feedback. You’ll learn how we use sets of senses for different activities and how to design experiences that support them.
By exploring examples from current designers and devices, you’ll see how rooting designs in the ways our senses function can make more useable, engaging products—and you’ll learn how to do it yourself with guides for research, design, and team deliverables.
