Any Ixder's working on physical products...

Most of my career in interaction design since 1984 has involved both
the physical aspects of hardware/devices as well as the software
aspects of displays, audio, the information systems behind them, and
the usage architectures by which they're used and the experience is
embodied.

Partly this is because I came from the product and industrial design
side of things, and also partly because much of my work has been in
unique or new device or system domains.

In my own career and approach, I've never separated the hard from the
soft in my view of what comprises the whole user experience.

Any Ixder's working on physical products inthegroup?

In answer to the original question, I am working on the design of some
physical phone related products and am happy to start a dialogue about that.

In terms of the ipod discussion below...I have an ipod and I love it *in
spite* of the interaction which frankly I often find confusing. Very
frequently, I am hitting the menu button at the wrong time instead of select
and I find the term "Menu" which really means "Back" on an iPod (sometimes)
to be very confusing and difficult to use. Having spoke with others, I know
that I am not alone in this observation.

A prime example I can think of is the iPod. Although software based, it is a
device that occupies meatspace. One could argue that its interaction design
transcends the desktop and pervades all layers of interaction, creating
an... experience. Easy to download, easy to manage, easy to configure, easy
to play...

What is it?

Any Ixder's working on physical products in the group?

Hey,
Most Ixd discussions in this group are related to web/desktop
applications. Wondering if anyone working with design of physical
product is here? Looking to start a general dialogue specifically in
this area.

Any information on groups/ associations specifically in this area would
be greatly appreciated.
