Keywords: intuitive interaction; intuitive use


This paper discusses and compares older and newer approaches to intuitive interaction research over the past fifteen years and asks how we can move forward from here. Outcomes from the different research endeavours are discussed and explained. Existing continua of intuitive interaction are discussed, and a new suggested framework for understanding these various approaches and how the different ideas and findings relate to each other is presented, as a first step to forming a solid platform from which new move forward in various new directions. The framework shows the relationships, differences and commonalities between these ideas and discusses the implications for researchers and designers.
