Being cheerful, delighted, energetic, and forward-looking

For a good experience when using products, services, and systems, users need to understand the interaction between themselves and the products by looking at them from physical and sensitivity viewpoints. Based on this notion, we design optimal interactions between users and products while researching on methods to design easy-to-use, convenient, attractive, and affective interactions by building prototypes and evaluating their usability.
