The brite lab is a research group devoted to Bridging Research in Innovation, Technology and Engineering. We view design as both a process and a product. As such, our lab explores ways to support the design process, particulary the early phases of design, with new technologies and we also explore how to develop innovative consumer products using user-centered design techniques.
