Title: " Playful User Experience Design for Wearable Computing "
Lecturer: Professor Jonna Häkkilä, University of Lapland, Finland

The talk addresses how to design playful and meaningful user experiences with wearable computing. Computing devices have expanded beyond conventional PC and smartphone form factors, and wearable computing taking advantage of different sensor and display technologies is emerging. The talk takes a user experience design perspective at the cross-section of design and technology, addressing the holistic user-centric experience, including both utilitarian and hedonic aspects.

Jonna Häkkilä is professor for Industrial Design at the University of Lapland, Finland (2014-), and docent in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) at the University of Oulu, Finland. She leads the user experience research group LUX at U. Lapland. Previously, she was Director of User Experience (UX) at the Center for Internet Excellence U. Oulu (2012-2014), and research leader at Nokia Research Center (2007-2011). She received her PhD degree in computer science from the University of Oulu, Finland, in 2007. She has published 150+ peer reviewed scientific papers on HCI, focusing on mobile and ubiquitous computing and user centric design. She has received research grants as PI from Horizon 2020, Academy of Finland, Business Finland, and Interreg. She works at the cross-section of technology and design, and her group’s works have been awarded at ISWC and exhibited at Milan Design week and Wanted Design, New York. Her current research interests include wearable technologies, unobtrusive interaction with technology, and in utilizing design methods for creating and assessing future technology visions.
