Computational Design Lab

Dishes are done, dude.

As part of an awesome group including an undergrad, two grads, and a PhD candidate I took my first foray into proper HCI with Eric Paulos.  We were to do a light ethnographic study of our own kitchens to identify an opportunity for embedded computation to augment our experience.  We tackled that age old problem:  dishwashing with roommates!  Here’s a brief overview and a link to the “Instructables” entry that drew a little attention.  You can also check out more on the class, Activating Objects.
