Enjoying Experiences Readings

The Engineering Experience made me realize how many of my interactions with computing have become more of a habit rather than an actual experience. Going home and logging into websites such as YouTube and Facebook have become part of my daily routine, but there isn’t much “fun” in it. This robotic behavior also occurs in the workplace. Every action is thought out for us, we skipped the apocalypse and went straight to being mindless zombies. By applying the phrase “think of meaning, not information” we can start to design quality experiences that improve the users quality of life.

Making Sense of Experience gave a really in-depth explanation about designing for experience. There are so many different aspects and layers to it. Even after tons of research, how a person will react/interact with a product is unpredictable. The best you can do is design a product that will allow an experience to emerge.
