Distributed design teams place a far heavier reliance on communication and collaboration than conventional collocated teams and as a consequence require design team members to acquire and develop an enhanced collaborative skill set. Given that distributed design teams are likely to remain as a dominant feature of product development for the foreseeable(More)
This research explores emotional response to gesture in order to inform future product interaction design. After describing the emergence and likely role of full-body interfaces with devices and systems, the importance of emotional reaction to the necessary movements and gestures is outlined. A gestural vocabulary for the control of a web page is then(More)
Undergraduate courses in design engineering address both the form and functional design of products. This apparently simple objective belies some of the real challenges faced in educating students on such courses. These challenges tend to relate to achieving a balance in the consideration of form and functional issues in a manner appropriate to the product(More)
This paper describes how a system comprising a learning environment and digital repository is being embedded into the Design Engineering teaching and learning. It then maps out the issues that have been encountered, how these have been overcome and how they will affect other departments or institutions as such tools are scaled up and rolled out. These(More)
