About my blog

The aim of the ITD course (ID4220) at the Delft University of Technology is to provide Design For Interaction Master students with in-depth theoretical and practical interaction design knowledge to help develop future products based on user-product social interaction. ITD proceeds through a sequence of iterations focusing on various aspects of the brief and the design, and culminates in an experiential prototype.

This blog is managed by Walter A. Aprile: please write if you have questions.



De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Happy Holidays, Team Happy 3

Welcome to our Office and Happy Coffee Corner

The exhibition! 


It was cool!!


😀 We made a lot of people smile! 😀


The prototype did not have a 100% perfect working score,

but we were able to convey our message and convince the audiance with our philosophy. 




And then: The ultimate test…..

…..Welcoming the visitors!


Get ready to energize….

 ….Set the prototype…


Goo Happiness!





The working prototype and the enthusiastic visitors made us Happy! 


We made it!!






 Very Happy Regards, Team Happy 3 

Final Prototype

The final prototype! 




Yeaahh! Ready to rock!

Hellows again! 


We are very curious to see all prototypes tomorrow at the exhibition!

The electronics are now connected with our Happy Tree and working! Wihaa! 

We could even use our old prototype, which will now function as a part of a wall :).

The exhibition preperations are also ‘in volle gang’. 
1. We will guide the visitors towards an office ambiance (the context of our product)
2. and they will then end up in ‘the coffee corner’
3. where our happy tree can enhance their moment of relaxation.
A sneak preview of the exhibition:


 Tomorrow everything will come together. Try the Happy Tree in Studio Three!
Hope to see you there! 


Happy Regards, Team Happy 3
