  14. Create a “mini-vacation”
  15. 10 Rules to Augment Fun and Beauty in Interaction Design <ul><li>1. Don’t think products, think experiences. Provide a context for the experience to unfold. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Don’t think beauty in appearance, think beauty in interaction. Aesthetics should guide the interaction, not be separated from usage . </li></ul><ul><li>3. Don’t think ease of use, think enjoyment of the experience. Problem-solving can be made enjoyable. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Don’t think buttons, think rich actions. Choose interactions that support the broader goal, not just the standard design element. </li></ul><ul><li>5. Don’t think labels, think expressiveness and identity. Instead of labeling icons and controls, design them to stand out or call screaming attention to the task. </li></ul><ul><li>6. Metaphor sucks. Choose unique identity over relying on tired and unreliable metaphors. </li></ul><ul><li>7. Don’t hide, don’t represent. Show. Choose transparency instead of hiding processes and describing what the user can’t see. </li></ul><ul><li>8. Don’t think affordances, think irresistibles. Beauty can evoke interaction, not just a functional clue or “affordance”. </li></ul><ul><li>9. Hit me, touch me, and I know how you feel . Study the rich actions surrounding a products use and design to those emotions. </li></ul><ul><li>10. Don’t think thinking, just do doing. Get hands on with the design early on. Keep visual representations in step with cognitive guidelines and requirements. </li></ul>Source: Overbeeke et. al. “Let’s Make things Engaging” in Funology (book)
