There is a strong shift towards remote work, especially after the pandemic. Most of the tools and technologies for connecting and communicating are designed for physical spaces, making it difficult to adapt in a remote environment. Feedback and nudges that are received during physical conversations get lost in translation while communicating online. Can there be smarter interfaces to bridge these communication gaps? How will these new interfaces showcase new experiences and provide a picture of tools and technologies for the future? By looking through a hybrid lens of interaction research and human-centered Design, the project tries to show how can technologies for remote work help to make teams feel more connected, communicate effectively, and be more reflective. The project is a study in micro-interactions to improve the experience for micro-moments during the Work from Home phase.
