The Cool Wall of HCI
Inspired by a certain TV programme about cars, the Cool Wall of HCI is where research, ideas, gadgets, games, websites, computers - anything vaguely related to HCI is discussed by the York HCI Group and placed into varying categories of coolness.
The Human Computer Interaction research group at the University of York is one of the oldest in the UK. It is part of the university-wide York HCI group, which includes members in the departments of Engineering, Psychology and Sociology. The group undertakes research into the design and evaluation of interactive systems from both theoretical and applied perspectives. The group has a highly interdisciplinary approach drawing on methodologies from anthropology, computer science, mathematics, psychology and sociology.
