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.
Our research was possible also thanks to numerous collaborators: Michel Pahud and Mike Sinclair (Microsoft Research), Ian Oakley (UNIST), Daniel Ashbrook (University of Copenhagen), Artem Dementyev (Google), Jean-Charles Bazin (now at Apple), Pedro Lopes (University of Chicago), Xing-Dong Yang (Dartmouth College), Liwei Chan (National Chiao Tung University), Aaron Quigley and Hui-Shyong (University of St Andrews), Hamed Alavi and Himanshu Verma (University of Fribourg), Youngjun Cho and Nicolai Marquardt (UCL), Hyeon-Jeong Suk and Tek-Jin Nam (KAIST Design),Geehyuk Lee (KAIST School of Computing), Hyoungshick Kim (SKKU).
