    Keep IT real, create, build, and develop design tools that support designers during the early phases of design processing. This paper investigates how, and whether, current technology can afford real-time interaction and affective computing in a HDT(E) design tool that integrates and blends realities through physical and virtual interaction. Interaction design (IxD) is crucial to the usability (UX) and engagement (UE), concepts and terminology are introduced, after which an interaction framework is set up that takes into account the multi-modal Human Computer Interaction (HCI) with a HDT(E).
