What are Affordances? | IxDF - The Interaction Design Foundation
An affordance is what a user can do with an object based on the user's capabilities. As such, an affordance is not a "property" of an object (like a physical object or a User Interface). Instead, an affordance is defined in the relation between the user and the object: A door affords opening if you can reach the handle.
