At the intersection of users and technology, we find the interactions of the users.
These interactions are highly dependent on the technology- mobile device, desktop application, gaming controller, kiosk – and the and the abilities and limitations of the users.
Technology choices are often impacted by existing products. Is there a legacy stack? Are you hoping to adapt what you have to something new, such as mobile? Are you starting fresh and able to select the best technology for the interactions needed? Other technology constraints also often come into play, such as what are the skill sets of the developers?
Balancing the users needs and the technology limitations will direct the design solution.
