Water-Human-Computer Interaction (WaterHCI)

WaterHCI (Water-Human-Computer Interaction) is a field of study and practice focusing on the design and creation of interactive devices, systems, and experiences at the intersection of water, humans, and technology. It is a relatively new field that originated in Ontario, Canada, in the 1960s, and was further developed at University of Toronto through a series of annual (de)conferences from 1998 to present.
