The Interaction Design Research Group (IDRG) studies interactions between people and technologies, in an era where technology has become pervasive infiltrating all aspects of life, redefining the concept of interaction. The challenge is to integrate new technologies seamlessly into human and more-than-human activities, in a way that serves and delights. We address this challenge with a methodological focus on understanding technology in context ‘in the wild’, working in HCI, interaction and user experience design, music computing, immersive environments, pervasive technologies, and animal-computer interaction.
