This book explores how our lives and social interactions havebecome split between two intertwined, but not integrated, realities: thephysical and the digital. Our sense of presence in the here and now has becomefragmented, and yet earlier design approaches reinforced the problem, ratherthan leading to improvements. The authors address these issues by laying outa new human computer interaction (HCI) design approach – human-experiential design – rooted in a return tofirst principles of how people understand the world, both consciously andunconsciously. The application of this approach to the design of blendedreality spaces is described in detail. Examples and scenarios of designing themto overcome the problems inherent in a variety of mixed reality settings areprovided.
Human-ExperientialDesign of Presence in Everyday Blended Reality will appeal to undergraduateand graduate students and researchers in interaction design, psychology, HCIand computer application studies, as well as practicing interaction designersand computer professionals. It will also be of interest to communication, mediaand urban design students, and to all readers with an interest in thetechnology-mediated future.
