    Abstract

    This paper investigates how and whether existing or current design tools, assist and support designers and engineers in the early-phases of ideation and conceptualization stages of design and engineering processes. The research explores how fluidly and/or congruously technology affords cognitive, emotive, gesture-based shape-and-form transformation and stimulates externalization within a hybrid design tool environment (HDTE). Meta-cognitive, emotive, gestural, sensorial, multi-dimensional interaction through exploration, translation and manifestation within a contextual blended environment is studied to enhance representation, stimulate choice-architecture and foster decision-making. Current and novel hybrid design tool developments and experiments illustrate the promise of hybridization for natural computing and unobtrusive design-tools (HDT) and cyber-physical systems (CPS). Put into perspective; a proposed framework of robust interaction design (IxD), gamification and affective computing (e.g. emotion) to improve and intensify user-experience (UX) and user-engagement (UE) is presented. The paper concludes by considering the allowance for possible novel routes to increase the scope and forging of links on prevailing frames of human-computer interaction (HCI).
