The Product Impact Tool is the application-oriented result of the research project Product Impact on User Behaviour, aiming to investigate the impact of technology on users and to make the insights applicable in the design process (Dorrestijn 2012).
The impact of technology on users and society is an important topic in research on technology in reflexive research fields (philosophy of technology, media studies). Especially in recent empirically oriented philosophy of technology and the related interdisciplinary field of Science and Technology Studies this has resulted in concepts that promise to be of interest for application in design as well.
