In this paper a design approach is introduced for designing products with added emotional value. First, the approach is established, based on a theoretical framework and a non-verbal instrument to measure emotional responses. Second, the value of the design approach was assessed by applying it to the design of mobile telephones. Mobile telephones were found(More)
Understanding which ontology characteristics can predict a “good” quality ontology, is a core and ongoing task in the Semantic Web. In this paper, we provide our findings on which structural ontology characteristics are usually observed in high-quality ontologies. We obtain these findings through a taskbased evaluation, where the task is the assessment of(More)
This article describes three experiments on the possibility of expressing scent or sound into visual forms made by design engineering students. The hypothesis tested was that people are able to pick up patterns in the energy flow that the students transposed from one perceptual sense to another. In Exp. 1 subjects were given different scents and were asked(More)
Virtual reality offers stylists the possibility to immediately sketch and model in 3D, combining the sketching and modelling stages of the design process. In this paper we describe MOVE ON, a new two-handed gesture-based Computer Aided Conceptual Design application for use in a virtual environment. The use of two-handed form-descriptive gestures to sketch(More)
The hypothesis was tested that the coupling of parallax shifts between objects depicted on a monitor screen around a fixation point with the head movements of an observer viewing this screen monocularly around a point coinciding with the fixation point is sufficient to create a convincing depth impression and to enable the observer to make reliable(More)
Many electronic products show little respect for the user, which results in poor experiences. We will argue that the user is interested in the experience rather than the product. To achieve rich experiences, design should respect all of man's skills, including his perceptual-motor and emotional skills, instead of focusing only on his cognitive skills. We(More)
Depth perception is closely linked to the ability to explore. Previously described laboratory experiments showed the advantage of linking the motions of the laparoscope directly to the head movements of the surgeon. Additionally, it was found that the laparoscope should be mechanically supported instead of manually (by an assistant). This article describes(More)
