Title Beyond the Big Red Button: Science Fiction as a Resource For Generating Novel Interaction Design Concepts For Emergency Situations
Author(s) Gobel, Balazs
Date 2014
English abstract
In this thesis I take up the challenge to see whether designers would benefit from using science fiction in order to extend their resources when generating novel interaction design concepts for emergency situations. I discuss the relationship between the nature of fiction and design, and trademarks for emergency situations. I choose four scenes from different media types to analyse, further ideate and evaluate in order to derive final concepts, which I submitted to user testing. I argue that designers may well take science fiction into consideration when generating novel interaction design concepts in a successful way.
