Hands-on experiments in anthropomorphisation

A session at UX Camp Brighton 2011

Let's get round a table and play/experiment with subtle(ish) ways to make sites, apps or objects more endearing, compelling and useful using language and/or movement.

We'll mostly be taking inspiration from rubbish bins, automatons, human movement, copywriters and theories of fetishisation to ask why we might build character traits (and story) into inanimate and interactive objects...yeah somehow all in 25mins.

P.S If anyone mentions Mr Microsoft Paperclip during this session they will not get cake.
