Welcome to the first ever design demo at the master program for media and interaction design (MIX). The event will take place in the Atrium in Media City Bergen from 10.00 to 12.30 on Friday May 3rd.

This is an event in the newly established "Innovation Days" at the MIX program. Our master students will present their interaction design projects, and you, dear audience, will give them feedback. This will help them to learn as much as possible about the potential for value creation in their designs.


Free lunch, free learning

We are here to help you! Contact us at Innovasjonspilotene@uib.no or follow us on Instagram.

The pedagogical purpose

There is a double pedagogical purpose: To give the students real-life experience of pitching to increase their pitching skills and to communicate the value propositions of their projects to the audience. It is a test of outward communication; daring to stand by your ideas and also daring to adjust them.

The Demo is also a way to explore the value propositions of the projects. The Demo is a sort of user testing, and the students may note responses and use them actively in their projects afterwards. MIX303 submission deadline is May 31st. MIX350 submission deadline is June 3rd.


Six testable prototypes

The second year MIX350 students will present almost-finished prototypes. We consider these to be "minimum viable prototypes".


Haunted Legacy – Remedy the past

Investigating the effect of guidance techniques and audio in a VR horror game. Image, Haunted Legacy – Remedy the past

Immerse yourself in this new VR horror experience and uncover four possessed artefacts, but beware of malevolent spirits that haunt the mansion. In this nightmare, you may experience auditory hallucinations, but listen carefully, as the ghostly whispers and blood-curdling screams may provide clues about the haunted mansion's dark past. Guided by tutorials and interface elements such as colour cues and dynamic lighting, you must unravel the sinister secrets that lurk within the mansion's walls. Collect all paintings and escape, or become another entrapped soul part of a haunted legacy.

Interaction Itself

How interaction and choice change the understanding and perception of narratives and stories. image, Interaction itself

Storytelling has been a part of the human condition for all of human civilization. But for most of human history, stories have placed the audience as a passive observer. I want to investigate in what ways the act of becoming an active participant in the narrative changes the perception of the story.

By Dani-Andrè Forstrønen, in collaboration with Center for Digital Narrative.

Live sports, with your phone

Image, Live sports, with your phone

How can we use UX to engage and better the experience of using mobile apps while watching live sports broadcasts?

Most young adults get distracted by their phone while watching live sports. This can both take the fun away from their watching experience and lessen their engagement in the sport. The viewers look for more stimulation and pick up their phones, but can we use UX design to make an app engage them further rather than take away their attention?

By Johanna Utle.



Forte - Making Rehearsing Easy

Utilizing interaction design to develop innovative solutions for music ensembles. FORTE

Many choirs currently rely on physical sheet music or inadequate technology that isn't tailored for praciticing music. Forte aims to bridge the gap between music and UX, offering a distinctive and efficient solution that facilitates on-the-go rehearsals. This project focuses on bridging music and technology to enhance musicians' experiences and create solutions crafted specifically for musicians.

A digital antenatal health card

Many pregnant women question how they in 2024 are given a physical piece of paper as the most important document they need to bring to their pregnancy check-ups up until giving birth. It has proven that this piece of paper, also known as the antenatal health card (in Norwegian: helsekort for gravide) raises several problems for the woman and the health care employees: like difficulties remembering the card to every appointment leading to incomplete documentation but it also has difficult handwriting from many different people making it challenging to read. Furthermore, the information also has to be registered digitally, leading to double work for the employees. It is very evident that this is an old and outdated solution. For that reason, our masters project will focus on creating a digital prototype that can be an asset in solving the issues related to today's paper-based health card called “Mammajournalen” (the mom journal).

Investigating Realism and Authenticity in Historical Digital Games: Designing a Prototype with Adjustable Realism Settings.

A constantly increasing number of new digital games are released each day, and with them, the amount of historical representation grows quickly. History remains one of the biggest sources of inspiration when it comes to creating new game universes. These uses of history involve a lot of questions on different topics ranging from ethics, philosophy, game design to players' engagement. This project aims to study these subjects through a computer game prototype that allows players to modify the level of realism and accuracy using adjustable parameters.

Designing for All

Navigating Digital Inclusion and Accessibility in UX Practice. Image, Designing for All

Technology is seamlessly integrated into every aspect of our lives, offering innovation at every turn. Yet, those who struggle to keep pace with the new digital landscapes are often overlooked. Should we design for everyone to understand and be included in the new age of technology, or are some people just bound to be excluded from a continually more digitalized society? We believe digital inclusion starts with a business's core structure and processes. This is why we're planning on analyzing internal structures regarding universal design and digital inclusion
