The Lab

Hello. MAKinteract (MAKE + interaction) is a research lab in the department of Industrial Design at KAIST working at the intersection of design and engineering, in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

Using user-centered design to define requirements, iterative prototyping, digital fabrication, and users studies to better understand users, we create novel mechatronic systems and fabrication toolkits for helping designers inventing yet unseen interactions.
