MF2116 Advanced Formgiving in haptics and tactility 3.0 credits

In this course we look at how to combine the knowledge from the course MF2096 Advanced design with haptility, tactility and sound. We will create a consumer product where the student focuses on interaction design through haptility, tactility, sound and form to enhance the product's communication with the user.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Exercises in morphology, design, haptility, tactility and sound take place initially every week.
Both quantity and quality are of great importance, as is the student's documentation of and reflection on the exercises.
After briefing, the students work individually during the week with the exercise that is completed by discussions it at seminars during the following the week. During the second part of the course, a smaller design project with a focus on shape is carried out, based on the earlier exercises.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the students should be able to:

1. create abstract shapes of high quality with respect to proportions, composition and expression with the application of haptility, tactility and sound.

2. by means of human computer interaction through haptility, tactility understand how one works with physical products to increase experience and communication, and approach the human aspect to counteract the negative aspects of an increasingly digitalised world.
