Clear’s Gesture Based UI

15 May

The “to-do list” app market is pretty flooded by now with tons of great options but Clear’s interface is hands down the most elegant. My only concern is the interface gestures it uses don’t necessarily feel natural and intuitive. Instead they feel like they are a learned behavior. The simplicity is fantastic, but there is something to be said for interfaces that use metaphors and interactions modeled on real life behaviors.

Take a look at their promo to see what you think.

Don Norman on Why Design Makes Us Happy

Don is a great speaker so check out his Ted Talk below.

Design Philosophy: How Might We

19 Apr

Google’s Social UX team leader, Charles Warren, gives a 5 minute preso about HMW (How Might We), a core component of Google’s design philosophy. Having worked closely with Google, I can attest that they use HMW in each and every design challenge.

Sketch-a-Move from Superflux on Vimeo.

This is a concept video for Sketch-a-move: A toy car that allows you to explore the unique relationships between small surface doodles and actual physical movements.

If you draw a circle on the top of the toy car, it will move in a circle. If you draw a complicated spiral, the car will move in a spiral.

The video visualises the varied experiences of interaction and scenarios of engagement.
