Digital Image Design Incorporated is a company dedicated to making computers easier to use by tailoring software and hardware around well-defined tasks. We strongly believe that the best tool is always a tool built for one specific task.

To this end we practice "physical interface design;" a combination of perceptual psychology, workflow analysis, graphical user interface design, industrial design, and simple good taste.

We started doing computer graphics and building software tools for clients in 1982. In 1991 we began selling our own products. We were the first in the world to offer a practical desktop virtual reality, inScape. We were recognized by ID Magazine with a "Design Distinction Award" for our patented Cricket 3D mouse, and won an award from Computer Graphics World for the Monkey, an innovative, doll-like posture input device for animators and users of anthropometric software.

We have built and designed human computer interfaces for clients as diverse as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Boeing, Proctor and Gamble, and Walt Disney Imagineering; using media as different as PostScript printouts, virtual reality displays, database-generated Web pages, plastic, metal, and electronics. We were commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art to create a "near-future knowledge interface" for the 2001 "Workspheres" exhibition.
