This paper offers a product design perspective to emerging material-oriented design methods in HCI. It outlines a research process for facilitating the design of interactive media products that enable a patina of deliberate material traces to grow on objects of daily use. In doing so, the paper reports on initial findings on how materials are perceived to ÔmatureÕ with use, discusses a design concept related to such findings, and offers a new direction for rich communication and interaction through and with objects.
