Recoding Product Design Education: Visual coding for human machine interfaces
MetadataShow full item record
This paper evaluates the impact of visual coding on the Industrial Design and 3D Design disciplines, in particular the role it plays in developing new products and services that would previously require interdisciplinary teams, or significant training beyond the scope of these disciplines into text-based coding and electrical engineering. The professional practice of designers working at the intersection of product design and coding is discussed, and design education evaluated in relation to the opportunities of electronics and visual coding. Quantitative research data is provided to support an argument that visual coding can enable designers to control their designs in new ways throughout the design and prototyping process.
