The interactive technologies lab (intLab) is a Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research group based in the School of Computer Science. HCI is a multidisciplinary field, therefore the research group unites a broad range of members with expertise in computer science, psychology, and design, and involves a range of collaborations with other disciplines and universities.
The goal of intLab is to study, design, and implement technologies that are usable, efficient, and enjoyable, putting people at the centre of our research. The group works on a range of aspects of HCI, including designing technologies for accessibility and educational needs. Intlab also has a long-standing interest in games and playful interactive systems, focusing on player experience in video games, the design of immersive virtual reality and augmented reality-based experiences, and using games as a research method.
