'Getting in the mood' is the name of a paper I'll be presenting at Design and Emotion in Chicago 5-7th October 2010. Since I'm getting in the mood for the conference ;-), here are some highlights of my latest thinking on mood, product design and interaction.
1. Currently product designers are missing out on mood.
More attention is paid to design for emotion than mood. Much of this has to do with the current state of mood research in product design: virtually non-existent.
