Empathic Interaction: Design Guidelines to Induce Flow States in Gestural Interfaces

Loup Vuarnesson

Abstract

The argument of this article is to propose design guidelines favoring the exploration and appropriation of an interface by a novice user, by drawing inspiration from the mechanisms of adaptation and perceptive loops in improvisation activities. We want to create sensitive digital experiences, accessible to as many people as possible, and dynamically adapt their behavior and their interface to the activity and to the emotional state of the users. Our hypothesis is that such a design would favor the emergence of Flow states, leading to the setting up of a ”social contract” between the user and his interface.
