Description - Intuitive Interaction by Alethea Blackler

This book explores recent research in intuitive interaction worldwide by a range of leading academics and practitioners in the field.

The book addresses how intuitive interaction is understood in different academic disciplines and how it has been researched in various parts of the world over the last 18 years. It covers how intuitive interaction can be applied in different contexts, like large scale urban installations, the developing world, in older populations, and in various industry applications.
