Abstract

We are so used to accept new technologies being the driver of change and innovation in human computer interfaces (HCI) that almost all books and trend studies are filled with all kinds of exciting visions and developments of new computing facilities and their interfaces. However, I am not going to discuss energy-efficient, small and mobile devices, nanobots or ambient environments. I would like to focus on advances which I consider to be more fundamental because they will not create just the next technical trends and innovations, but they will pave they way how these innovations are derived, developed and turned (or rolled) out. I refer to this process of turning out innovations as a design process – or design, for short. I want to show – by the results of some recent experiments – that the idea of what a “device” is becomes more fluid and finally blends into something we might call “imagination”, letting us end up with more or less “imaginative designs”.
