The IxD Lab is a place where we build ideas. It is a space for working with research questions that demands physical explorations into new forms of interaction and into new material and computational expressions.
The IxD Lab is open to any researcher at the ITU who is looking to build stuff as part of their research. The lab also hosts a variety of in-house and external events as means to exchange knowledge of new technologies and forms of interaction.
See the Resources section for what we offer at IxD Lab.
The IxD lab can be found at 5A58 .

Ambient Cycle is an app and a Wi-Fi connected LED strip that slowly changes colour according to the user’s menstrual cycle data. We wanted to explore what happens when we turn our bodies inside out, allowing our homes to adapt to our changing bodies. We felt that menstrual cycles are an interesting design case as they are relatively predictable and many bodily and emotional changes happen over the menstrual cycle. We were also interested in gathering people’s reactions to having their private data made public in this way.
