Presentation “Speechless – Researching alternative forms of interaction!”.

From March 24-May 12, 2010, the Concept Store 4010 in Berlin’s Mitte district invites those interested in communication and design to visit the “Telekom Laboratories weeks”. Scientists and developers from our Design Research Lab will be presenting selected topics from our work in the area of design research at various workshops, presentations and discussions. In parallel, an in-house exhibition will be displaying prototypes of communications devices developed at the Deutsche Telekom Laboratories on the subject of “gender-inspired technology” and “StreetLab”. 

Recently the event was launched by Prof. Dr. Gesche Joost, who heads the Design Research Lab at the Deutsche Telekom Laboratories. In her presentation on “Project G – Gender Inspired Technology”, she presented her experiences and the results of her research on the desires and visions that women have with regard to devices and services for communication and information retrieval.

Here is a short video impression from the opening presentation:
