This blog is about interaction design: I am doing this blog for myself, to organize the things I find and hear about. This blog is also for my students to see what I am right now interested in and which directions I am looking at. Last but not least, this blog is maybe also inspiring for others, who want to know more about what Interaction Design could be…
My name is Reto Wettach. I have been in the field of Interaction Design for quite a while now, first with IDEO in San Francisco, then with Sony in Tokyo. Since 2003 I am working in academics, first with the Interaction Design Institute in Ivrea and now with the University of Applied Sciences in Potsdam, Germany. I am also working as design director with IxDS, a Berlin-based design research agency.
I am also the initiator of an open-source software tool for designers, who want to work in a creative way with hardware: Fritzing. Please check it out!
Besides all this computer stuff, I am interested in weird places and little adventures. With my partner Michaela Vieser I published a book on Overlooked Sights in Germany.
