This research presents the relation of sense of objects with usability and user experience as it is influenced by the context of use, the interaction with apparatuses and the transformation of the perceived value through a narrative of experience. The research analyses subject meaning and significance fators with usability and experience concepts in a pervasive scenario of ecology systems and cross-channel interactions.
