The BMW i8 is a plug-in hybrid sports car developed by BMW. Inspired by its efficient use of fossil and electric power, we designed a head-up display concept, which focuses on the interaction between the two drivetrains.

The development of human-computer interaction has reached a point where you can interact with a computer-controlled object through language, gestures, touch and many other new input channels. User interfaces, which enable the user such an interaction will be grouped under the term natural user interfaces (NUI).
These interfaces have one stated goal: To make the user feel familiar with the application from the very beginning. The learning process can be minimized by using interactions which are as intuitive as possible.
The thesis contains among other things 228 collected basic interactions which can be used in NUIs. They are subdivided in six main categories and three learnability groups.
To promote the use of intuitive interactions in this area, the collected interactions from the research phase have been arranged in the Human Interaction Database (HID).
It supports designer in the exploration and integration of new interaction principles in their projects.
Among other things, this database provides a broad overview of usable input options, their characteristics, an estimated learning curve and hardware and software required for integration. It focuses on basic interactions that can be combined with each other. The application also includes a brief explanation of the design process and a case study.

The goal of this project is to find new ways to interact with digital content by using multiple sensors. It is an experimental approach to a new kind of interface, which could be integrated in the working environment.
The proof of concept focuses on the real time manipulation of sound files. It uses Arduino and Pure Data to generate and manipulate sound files, and outputs the result through the speakers of the computer, on which the application runs.

The Decoded Conference was a conference which combined design and code in one event in Munich. Speakers from fields like generative design, information design, gaming, interactive installations to physical computing gave a deep insight into their work and their process of development.
During my internship at envis precisely i designed the website layout and created drafts for the respective contents.
For this event we illuminated the facades of the HfG building, each with one laser and one video projector. We designed and organized the projection, and were also responsible for the technical realization of the event.
First the concept was tested with two video projectors on the 1:50 scale model of the building which also was used for projecting the results of the 5 days vvvv beginner workshop. Finally it ran on the facade of the Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd with two cinema projectors and two lasers.

A generative projection using the architectural elements and the facades of the Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd building.
This project was realized during a five days vvvv beginner workshop. The task was to create a vvvv patch for the architectural projection on the building. The workshop results were intended to be used for the projection during the 100th anniversary celebration, which took place in december 2009.
We worked with a true 1:50 scale model of the building and had corresponding 3d files.
The concept includes the idea of analyzing and using typical aspects from the facades of the HfG building as the grid for our visualization.
