On the last Tuesday 15 November, We had to explore different interfaces and understand the process of the user while using them.
Interface: a point where two systems, subjects, organizations, etc. meet and interact.
As a group we looked at defined interfaces of the brief, such as, the lift, a vending machine or the printer.
Functional, or not functional, simple or complex, digital or physical, the interfaces can proviede data to understand the purpose of such interfaces.
After going through a mandatory list we had to think about other interfaces to document for further discussion on the afternoon.
These were all the interfaces that we have documented. I felt that the exercise can be useful once you need to understand how you want to build up your own interface.
It means that all the evidence and tools are close to us and we just need to carefully observe and break down the information provided.
The discussion was really interesting and overall all groups had a really interesting approach of the brief.
