Dork Factory

Joonas Hyvönen

In Dork Factory, virtual reality is here, and it’s the ultimate user interface. With it, the interface agent (like the Office Assistant Clippy was) is reborn to help one to adjust to the newly reformatted environment. Now, the question remains: who really benefits, and is the seemingly harmless figure a helper or a deterrent?
