from physical to digital -> Fujitsu Laboratories

This is an interesting touch-like interface that seems to bridge the gap between the physical content world (books, magazines, notes…) and the digital world. The highly accurate fingertip mapping allows the user to conduct some common gestural actions in the real world, transferring data to the digital world.
“We think paper and many other objects could […]

Touch Time -> Phosphor Digital Watches

This is an interesting Kickstarter project for a touch interface wrist watch design, created by the founder of Fossil watches, Donald Brewer and ex Nike + designer, Stefan Andren. I like that the design allows you to select from 7 different watch dial displays, it’s also nice that you don’t have to charge or […]

Sharp AQUOS -> Android Smartphone

Sharp AQUOS Android Smartphone – Feel UX from frog on Vimeo.
Overall this looks like a promising new design coming from Frog + Sharp AQUOS for Android. I like the dashboard and the ability to add breakers to help organize different types of apps or content. There seem to be some little bits of hidden functionality that […]

SketchSynth -> Drawable OSC Control Surface

Notes from Site:
“SketchSynth lets anyone create their own control panels with just a marker and a piece of paper. Once drawn, the controller sends Open Sound Control (OSC) messages to anything that can receive them; in this case, a simple synthesizer running in Pure Data. It’s a fun toy that also demonstrates the possibilities of adding […]

Sensu -> Artist Brush for iPad

A friend turned me on to this amazing looking digital artist brush coming from Artist Hardware called the Sensu brush. I’ve been drawing a lot more thanks to the 53 Paper app, it would be a lot of fun to try out a real brush on the screen. It looks promising. Additional note: this innovative idea […]

Emulator 1.5 -> Audio Interface

I really dig this new digital audio interface called Emulator 1.5, designed for Traktor 2. The ‘tronish lightscreen’ interface feels super clean and something of a circa 1980s sci-fi throwback. In a very good way. I’m usually not a fan of too many interface colors competing for a user’s attention, but this execution demands it, […]

B-Reel -> 'TRE' video based sales interface

This is a very interesting and futuristic eCommerce touch interface concept for use as a way to bridge the gap from an in-store experience to an online sales experience. The design was created by a Swedish mobile production company called B-Reel and the product is called ‘TRE’. I think the interface, as ‘minority report’ as it […]

Skinput: Projected Interface -> Chris Harrison

Interaction designers have their work cut out for themselves these days, for sure. We’ve got a multitude of iPads, tablets, E-Readers, a bazillion different mobile phone devices, internet TV and many other untapped experimental multimodel, voice and gestural interactions to think about and design interfaces for. In addition to all of that, there’s this intriguing projection based interface […]

Strukt -> Interactive Showreel

Strukt Interactive Showreel Spring 2010 from Gregor Hofbauer on Vimeo.
The video and imagery above are from Strukt Design Studio’s latest interactive show reel, and it makes me feel very excited for what the future holds for us all. Personally, if I could surround myself with HD projectors, touchscreens and mapping software and maybe a couple […]

10/GUI -> Desktop Touchscreen

My good friend sent me this link the other day because he knows how concerned I am about the whole messy touch screen dilemma that many of us deal with these days. I always carry around at least a couple little sunglasses micro-fiber cloths for my iPhone and my camera. I have often wondered how […]
