This paper illustrates three novel kitchen blender interactions aimed at bringing about a higher level of engagement with interactive products, as a response to current, seemingly un-engaging interactions. We describe our starting points and approach after which we present the designed blender interactions. Following that, we illustrate the set-up of our first evaluation and present preliminary findings. We wrap up by outlining future work. The experiment was performed comparing the novel interactions with the original blender interaction using Rozendaal’s Richness, control and Engagement (RC&E) Framework. The outcomes suggest that the designed interactions are indeed more engaging than the original blender interaction.
