“What is it that makes being in person different to talking to someone digitally?”
Tea was broadcasting live from Sydney and even this small divide had its limitations. She asked us what makes seeing her on a screen, real time, talking to us, different to her standing there at the conference in the “real world”. Was it a missing sense, or something more?
Tea brought it down to our physical relationship with computers, and how we experience digital. She mentioned that UX is focussed almost exclusively on people holding a small piece of plastic and glass, when it should be about how we bring the real world into that digital one, and vice versa.
