Job Offer! May 16, 2006

Posted by reto wettach in jobs.



For a 5-months research project I am looking for an Interaction Designer, who would like to play a major role in an academic project – sponsored by the industry.

Starting from the Apple patent for Gestures for touch sensitive input devices and from research as Navigation with spatially aware handheld displays we will do a creative exploration of tactile interaction with handheld devices.

I am looking for somebody, who is familiar with the status-quo in this area (research and art) and who is also able to conceptually develop new interaction design ideas and implement them with what we call "just-enough-prototyping"-techniques (as e.g. video prototyping and physical computing).

What I am mostly excited about in this project is that there is budget for experts to help us and that we will even be able to invite a research-guru from Japan and one from the US to give us feedback! 

The project will be starting as soon as possible and taking place in Berlin (during the World-Cup – if anybody cares). Please contact me: wettach (a) fh-potsdam.de

[…] We Make Money Not Art is truly a champion in displaying what the author is able to do. I’m really suprised when I stumbled across the amount of content that I can go through, and the quality of enjoyment from reading it. It sure shares links and thoughts on the ‘newest’ technology and gadget that is live, but the diversity of the content and links with the design industry. Expect you’ll read through various weird inventions from the land of the rising sun, and as well crazy suprises from the MIT dudes, what’s more, it might prove that most of the findings would be the technology of tomorrow. Related to the post above, Interaction Design is one interesting blog I came across while browsing for design blogs, and guess what, things such as an interactive spoon that would react, interact to improve your cooking skills. Not bad eh. And they’re looking for collaboration for a research project. […]
