4 B C H A P T E R 2 : T H E C O N T E X T O F S T U D YDuring the project, the focus has expanded to all SR-RFID-relatedtechnologies, including applications beyond mobile phones. This change wasa response to the findings acquired by the design probes conducted as part ofthe study.A research by design projectResearch by design is a central research mode in the Touch project. Aspreviously mentioned, such research uses the ‘explorative, generative andinnovative aspects of design’ to perform a research inquiry (Sevaldson,2010). The research and design processes were carried out over three yearsby a multidisciplinary research and design team consisting of seven peoplewith specialisation from a number of different disciplines includingindustrial, interaction, media and graphic design. In addition, the projectincluded participants from social research, software engineering andergonomics. Also, the project worked with masters’ level students ofinteraction and industrial design courses from Oslo School of Architectureand Design (AHO).Figure 2.1. The Touch project has participated in numerous exhibitions of the projects' work.The images are from the Nordes '09 conference at the Oslo School of Architecture in 2009.As SR-RFID is a relatively new technology with a limited range of designexamples, the project relied heavily on the construction of prototypes anddesign visualisations to be able to investigate it.13
