Welcome to the FIT Lab!

  • What is the FIT Lab?

    FIT means Future Interaction Technologies — it’s about the complex devices that change our lives, for better or worse — whether in our homes, cars, mobile phones or medical devices.

    Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) can be a creative and exciting field of research, but in collaboration with companies like Microsoft Research, Nokia, and the NHS, the FIT Lab likes to focus on Grand Challenges

    The FIT Lab was opened in 2006 by Professor Harold Thimbleby and has since grown to include a range of world-leading HCI experts.

    As well as performing world-class HCI research, the FIT Lab runs PhD, MSc and MRes programs.

New Year - New Adventures!

01 February 2017

Hello all! Happy new year to everyone! Just as we are beginning to get ready for the new academic semester we are also planning for a very busy year in the FIT Lab. This month we have said goodbye to Parisa who has left to join the software academy in Cardiff and are getting used to many new members who are settling in to our little FIT Lab family: Deepak, Alena, Tom and Thomas. We have had some success at CHI 2017 with several papers and have our fingers crossed for the work-in-progress' and case study we have under review. In other news, the Maker Space is in its final stages of health and safety and should be open very soon! Exciting times! Keep checking back for more news from the FIT Lab - bye for now!
