Option 1 Interactive Materials for Society
Project: Interactive Materials enable new user interaction as they enrich users’ senses (changing colours or shape). Combining data-driven design processes and visualizing societal related information to different stakeholders is key of this technical PhD topic. With cases studies from Philips Design from the domain of health care the goal is to investigate how to show societal relevant information (e.g., successfully treated patients in the city) in interactive material-based design solutions.
Option 2 A Design Framework for Interactive Materials
Project: Develop a design framework for interactive materials and how to enhance user experience with such approaches in medical settings (Philips Design). A series of design solutions will be used to validate the framework to contribute to the general understanding of how to design for multi-stakeholder user experiences with interactive materials.
Option 3: Evaluation frameworks for Interactive Materials
