Common Interactive Objects

In CIO, common interactive objects are developed and explored to extend human control over the technological environment by human beings, both individually and together. CIO leads to a coherent framework of user interfaces to be applied in interaction design. Common interactive objects will provide a useful frame for furthering human computer interaction (HCI) theory, development of interac­tion design methods and the underlying technical platforms. Common interactive objects will empower users to better understand and develop the technologies they use.

When carried through, the project offers new ways for people to construct and configure human physical and virtual environments, together, over time and within communities.
