welcome to The Museum of Lost Interactions (MoLI)
This website makes available our most recent collection of forgotten communication and entertainment media, to anyone unable to attend the exhibition in December 2006.
These nine exhibits were donated by a group studying Interactive Media Design, who lovingly restored each to working order. Their discoveries were made whilst researching examples of interaction design that pre-dated digital technology. They also uncovered archive film, photography and packaging which places each artefact in its historical context.
I know that everyone involved has been affected by the surprising similarities and profound differences between these and contemporary designs, and of how interchangeable technologies often are but how much more important social change can be. This experience should make these young interaction designers both more inventive and more reflective when they come to create the interactions of our future.
We hope you find the collection equally informative and inspiring.
