Emotional Design Laboratory
Finding the secrets of manufacturing products that are loved by users in the long run
We are surrounded with many things, but how many of those are really necessary? Products in any genre should not only fulfill their required functions but also give the users a sense of comfort, satisfaction, and attachment. We are identifying the emotional factors related to using products under the theme of “why people are attracted to certain things.” We are also applying the research results to find ways to make products attractive by using engineering knowledge.
