MEETeUX discusses issues of relevance to the future in the sectors of interaction design and user experience design for the integrated usage of media technology devices (mobile devices, multi-touch tabletops, large surfaces) in multi-device ecologies.
In semi-public spaces, tested interaction designs and user experience concepts are still lacking and make it difficult to apply the technologies easily, for the prospective integrated and for user’s beneficial usage of these devices. MEETeUX will make this possible by designing usage scenarios for the integration of various terminal devices, which shows the usage of multi-device ecologies in semi-public spaces. Therefore, MEETeUX concentrates on the integration of the user’s terminal devices (“Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) usually smartphones) in consisting device ecologies. The usage of the own devices allows an adaption to the user’s special needs, thus improving the accessibility. In MEETeUX, selected scenarios, e.g. for the usage of knowledge transfer in a museum, will be implemented and evaluated for a user centered design approach.
