UCL Interaction Centre:
A film by students at the UCL Interaction Centre (UCLIC) explains the importance of studying how humans interact with technology. UCLIC's Dr Dominic Furniss and Dr Rachel Benedyk challenged students taking the MSc in Human--Computer Interaction (HCI) with Ergonomics to make a short film to convey the concept of HCI to a young audience. The class favourite was this film created by MSc students Lucy Hughes, Alistair Wood, Jesper Garde, Tianbo Xu and Philipp Hund, which tackled the subject by focusing on the history of buttons -- and why they go bad.
