Expository Presentation

  1. 1. Semantics... “A systematic inquiry into how people attribute meanings to artifacts and interact with them accordingly” Essentially... What objects mean to us and how we use them.
  2. 2. Interface Design... - User Interface focuses on two things: Inputs: What the user does to an object Output: What the object produces in response The iPod has simple inputs with obvious outputs. Press Play and it plays music.
  3. 3. The clickwheel: The scrolling motion is intuitive and distinct which makes it so well received.
  4. 4. Digital Mapping... The layout of menus, buttons, and information. The iPod does most things in 4 steps or less. Everything there has a purpose and nothing is just “added on”.
