Sustainable human-computer interaction (HCI) is emerging as a major theme in the HCI community. Sustainability refers to fulfilling the long-term spiritual, environmental, and social requirements of humans. The previous discussions on sustainable HCI, specifically on the spiritual and social needs, were limited. Digital artifacts are essential parts of human life. A design critique perspective that considers computers as partners of users are proposed based on the human-computer integration concept. Three cases are reviewed in this paper to illustrate the critique perspective. Opportunities and implications are also discussed.
