The complexity of systems can be made more graspable by an embodied interaction style. Taking appointments entails abstract thinking: what's time? When we analyzed the steps taken in traditional agendas, we found that specificity is obstructive in the process of making an appointment (i.e. we don't have in mind a structured grid of timeslots). Therefore, we envisioned a seamless way of setting ‘flexible appointments’ which have less specificity of time. We took the challenge of adding a new functionality at the end of the process (a video recorder) in order to address the issue of growth in connected systems.
