“A system which is affected by input and generates output accordingly.”
There are many levels of interactivity:
- No interactivity. For instance, A button which cannot be pressed is non-interactive.
- Direct interactivity. For instance, a button which can be pressed and makes a sound is directly interactive.
- Indirect interactivity. For instance, a button which opens a door allowing a robot into the room is indirectly interactive as the direct interaction of opening a door also allows for possible future interactions with other entities, such as the robot.
