Ludic Interfaces - a new kind of interface
"Ludic Interfaces" is the name for a new discipline and for an innovative type of interfaces.
Ludic interfaces are playful interfaces. The notion of a "homo ludens", introduced by Jan Huizinga, is the conceptual backbone of the tools we are looking at. Think of devices like the Wii console, solar power operated building facades, unconventional musical instrument controllers, game art devices ...
The tools and concepts applied with the concept of ludic interfaces differ from traditional technological systems as they are playful, user-generated and user-driven, flexible, low-cost and cooperative. Ludic interfaces take the best from computer games, artistic experiment, interactive media, media conversion, social networks and modding cultures and result in tools that offer an ease of use and playfulness to cope with a rapidly changing society.
