This research explores how such familiar notions can successfully translate onto interactive systems; providing profound and emotional design experiences without the necessity for a physical chassis. An online survey facilitated the acquisition of a consumer voice regarding levels of engagement with various interactive devices. It also explores consumer understandings of privacy and data collection. A series of interviews was conducted with professionals in the UX industry, adding context to affective implementation within commercial environments. Furthermore, these discussions address the benefits of implementing emotional design experiences interactively and the privacy concerns this surfaces. The research concludes with an overview of how affective computing methodology - in conjunction with consumer engagement - can be used in the creation of profound experiences whilst using interactive systems. It also explores the issues which arise with its implementation; specifically privacy and implicit data collection. Recommendations for further study in this field are provided based on the research discussion and findings.
