    IPD Lab.

    IPD Lab explores ways for expressing and physically interacting with personal data through the form of everyday objects.

    Our lab mainly goes through the industrial design process, technical implementation, and field study to realize our vision; and results are mostly published in ACM CHI & DIS along with HCI-related journals.

    Design Examples

    Everyday things as a medium for tangible interaction with personal data

    Examples of a person interacting with lifelog data (e.g., schedule, reading activity, pedaling, photos, digital music, and emails) through everyday artifacts (e.g., clock, tray, stool, lamp, and frame) in home. Each artifact is showing the amount/status of a certain user’s lifelog data.
