"The 4D Dynamics Conference has been a great success. It has brought
people together from different disciplines involved with design from
engineering, and industrial design to the performing arts.
4D is clearly a powerful concept that people have recognised as
something worth pursuing."
"The time is right for a paradigm shift in design - a new mind set to
extend the ethos of design thinking to new areas of growing importance."
"The synergy of multimedia and robotics with
'smart' structures and materials plus a synthesis of knowledge from the
disciplines of ergonomics and the performing arts, together with the ethos of
4D industrial design, where people come first is exciting. It will result in
profound changes for design education, design practice, but design
research is needed to help us understand the opportunities in front of us.
