Emotional factor analysis for systems
This is a study which analyzed several academic articles about HCI projects that focused in the emotional factor. Based on those analysis I collected the topics that were common among the projects. These topics indicate which aspects should be considered in solutions that must involve the user emotionally.
The topics are:
- Option to decide: Allow the user to control what he wants to express and how to manifest something
- Cross different types of information: when analyzing the user reaction, cross conscious responses against physical responses
- Allow active manifestation: Avoid systems that simply relay physical responses, instead always allow the user also insert his intentional responses
- Freedom for building information: So that the user can print his own identity or use symbols that are common in his community
