We present criminal-like characteristics as a speculative interactivity model for future products that could be more speculative, prejudicial and challengeable.
We investigated this issue by designing XD-10269,
a criminal-like interactive Water Dispenser.
Criminals' emotional and behavioral characteristics were applied to a product concept in the design development process.
The main features of XD-10269 include
i) emotional expression of anxiety through stealing something(making harm to) from people,
ii) On and Off interface are simulate with people's fear of criminal, and
iii) continuous dynamic interaction for long term product attachment.
Preliminary evaluation has showed that users perceive XD-10269 to be alive and to support prejudicial and speculative interaction.
This research provides a new perspective on the development of complex and intelligent products,
and this model can be used as a design method for considering different social class and associated characteristics.
