what do you think about interaction design / technology embedded in everyday objects? Touchscreens in tables, pillows, walls.
I believe that for a technology to be adapted by larger masses you first need to go the way of integrating it into something that people already know and are confortable with - in a way that you don't disturb the usage of the (host) object itself.
I've been working as an interaction designer for less than a year (student, interning) and have struggled with finding a good tool to use for creating product flows. Programs like Fireworks and Flash Catalyst are great for making clickable prototypes. And programs like Visio are decent for creating flowcharts showing the overall organization of an application. But the two remain largely separated.
I'm new here. I am a software engineer by trade but wants to learn/study interaction design. I live in the Philippines and most of the universities mentioned in the discussions are either in the US/Europe. Are there by chance any university offering e-learning courses for Interaction Design?

Hello. My name is Melissa McLean and I am currently working on my thesis project for an MFA in Web Design New Media at the Academy of Art University.
Next semester is approaching and I am looking for an interaction design professional who is passionate about their career and is interested in sharing their knowledge and fostering a young professional in the development of their thesis project.
Specifically, my thesis project is an application for the iPad that allows a user to compose music with very little knowledge of music theory or the ability to read or write music.
