User-driven innovation regards users as a resource in the innovation process. Taking prototypes of novel technology as a starting point, a dialogue with users becomes a springboard to generate new ideas. The user group is often highly specialized, and not necessarily the intended end users of the technology. The Future Applications Lab has successfully used this approach in several recent projects. In Pin&Play, we pushed the development of novel surfacebased networking in collaboration with the staff of a film festival. In context photography we engaged a group of photographers with a unique outlook on the process of picture taking.
