People experience various affects (emotion, mood, feelings) in various experiences. These affective experiences are considered as essencial values of our lives, services, and products. However, people's affective experiences are also difficult to design andevaluate. We call the potential of people and artifacts to evoke affects among people's mind as "affective." We are doing research on the question "How can we provide people with affective experiences?" in various ways: how to design, how to evaluate, and what managementis necessary for companies to provide such affective experiences.Our laboratory welcomes people with broad backgrounds, with various ideas, senses, feelings, and dreams. We promote affective and creative atmosphere in our laboratory.
