Fiddle is a futuristic interactive coffee shop experience envisioned for the Interaction Design Studio class taught at Carnegie Mellon's Human Computer Interaction Institute by Eric Paulos. The theme of the project is coffee shops & digital representations of the self.

In the early stages of the project, we defined a niche to focus on. The goal of the project is centered around these two questions:

+ How can coffee shops engage visitors in new kinds of interactions?
+ How can local coffee shops differentiate themselves from chains?

This website details the research and design process we took to answer these questions and create Fiddle.


The Fiddle team: Chloe Fan (HCII PhD), Hang Le (MHCI), and Asim Mittal (MHCI).
