Interaction design is everywhere. This blog is my moderately academic attempt to capture as many instances of interaction design as I possibly can.

 

Hopefully this isn’t a perverse simplification of mental models, but I was pleasantly taken aback by the display on my new washing machine. As opposed to the usual dominate wash options (water temperature, perceived soil levels, and the like) this display more closely resembles real mental models for people attempting to wash a load of laundry. Typically, laundry is done according to the color/ condition of the clothes and how much time one has to do laundry. This display obviously accounts for this criteria flawlessly. And even though I’m not so sure what to expect for the “basket clean” option, I think this is one of the best washing machine displays I’ve seen.
