Psychology of Computing: Crash Course Personal computer Science #38

We’ve spent most of this series speaking about computers. Which makes sense – this is Crash Course Computer SCIENCE after all. But at their core computers are tools employed by humans and humans are fairly complicated. So nowadays, we’re going to go over some psychological considerations in developing computer systems like how to make them easier for humans to use, the uncanny valley issue when humanoid robots gets a lot more and more humanlike, and strategies to make our devices function greater with us by incorporating our emotions and even altering our gaze. Oh, and we’ll talk about Carrie Anne’s all time favourite user interface design and style principle – knurling.
