Affective design (or Kansei design in Japanese) is an expansion of conventional engineering design that considers requirements depending on human perception and emotions as well as product function and performance. Affective design engineering is an emerging discipline that studies theories and methodologies for engineering designers to create delightful artifacts in a systematic way. Our laboratory aims to understand the essential mechanism of perception and emotions and to formulate their first principles. We apply theories and methodologies to several industrial applications in cooperation with various disciplines.
