The acoustical channel is explicitly feasible to intuitively inform the user of a product about the current status of operation and to give a feedback about the performed action. The inherently produced sound of the product often is not sufficient to give an appropriate feedback, so that additional signals have to be generated and reproduced. A patent pending method of Active Sound Design for vacuum cleaners is presented in this paper. The amount of currently aspired dust is measured, and this… Expand

Towards a methodology for consequential product sound design
Product sound design is attracting more and more attention due to the fact that product acceptance is affected directly by the product sound quality. There are two categories of product sound:Expand
Potential of Application of Psychoacoustics to User/Product Interaction Design
This paper reviews some of the more relevant studies in the field of sound from a perspective of its potential application to product interaction design, and critically analyses their main contributions to date and their potential application in order to contribute to the proposal for future lines of work.

Expressive feedback from virtual buttons
The simple action of pressing a button is a multimodal interaction with an interesting depth of complexity. As the development of computer interfaces to support 3D tasks evolves, there is a need toExpand
Impact of sound on image-evoked emotions
In two experiments the effect of sound on visual information was investigated. In Experiment 1 the effect of the visual appearance of product types with an expensive deign and with an inexpensiveExpand

Toward a Sustainable Faucet Design
People form their judgments of everyday phenomena based on multisensory information. This study investigates the relative impact of visual and auditory information on the perception of running tapExpand
Product Sound Design as a Valuable Tool in the Product Development Process
Product sound design is a current topic in the field of product design. It proposes the study and application of sound as one of the essential configurable parameters in the product design process,Expand
