The academic discipline of human-computer interaction (HCI) is in the middle of a significant reorientation. For more than twenty years, it was concerned with the usability of work-related, purposeful and efficient computer use. The last years have seen a rapidly growing scientific interest in aesthetic, playful, emotional, pleasurable interaction. This collection captures the state of the field in recent years remarkably well. The authors in the first section propose a number of theories and concepts that all seem to hold potential value as analytical tools. The second section addresses methods and techniques, on the whole forming a useful mix between incremental improvements upon HCI methodology and more innovative approaches. The third section, containing a set of design case studies, is generally the weakest. Some of the design cases pinpoint important aspects of interaction design, whereas others are lacking or vague in terms of design qualities. However, this potential shortcoming can equally well be read as an accurate snapshot of academic HCI: stronger on analysis and methodology than on design practice.
