Future of user interface designPresentation Transcript
The future of USER INTERFACE DESIGN & TECHNOLOGIESRanjeet Kumar TayiSr. User Experience Engineer UX – TEAMwww.ranjeeth.com | www.ranz.in | firstname.lastname@example.org
2009 Internet Revolution • First meet the internet in 2009 was more than 50% done by mobile! • Previous years it was done by PC • Desktop and mobile became complementary
Too many features makes complexity Do we need this Does any one use all
Foucs on what users really want We need simple interfaces 80% of users use only 20% of our functionality
Types of user interfaces
Heads Up Display (HUD’s) A head‐up display or heads‐up display (HUD) is any transparent display that presents data without requiring users to look away from their usual viewpoints. •Originally developed for military aviation •Now a days used in aircrafts, cars, trains, busses and other experimental scenerios •Even helmet mounted Heads Up Displays available for motorcyclists now •Many games are designed using this technology
Heads Up Display (HUD’s) Car Windshield as a user interface • A Microsoft’s patent ‐ windshield HUD’s in cars that display information from temperature to email. • we’ll even have windshields with enhanced night vision, or even customizable widgets & gadgets.
Eye Wear Use applicatins hands free • many new eyewear HUD products on the horizon including a pair of specs being developed by Brother • eye‐gesture glasses developed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems. • you might be able to hack a wearable computer with a heads‐up display of your own like this guy.
Gesture Interface • Recognize human body language instead of archaic data entry • Intuitive, user friendly, and “fun“ • Can learn unique handwriting patterns and transcribe it into plain text • A group of scientists is working on a new system that does this without the pen.
Gesture Interface • Allow computers to recognize natural human idiosyncrasies and actions – e.g. the iPhone bump. Application allows two users to exchange contact information by literally “bumping” their phones into each other. Such an action could be compared to bumping into someone, or swapping business cards, and feels more natural to the end user. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZudLSKaBgM
Assistive technology in small devices
Spatial Motion Interfaces • Translate movement captured in a three‐dimensional space into inputs on a device (e.g. Nintendo Wii’s motion controllers) • The PlayStation Motion Controller is Sony PlayStation’s • Even more exciting is Microsoft Xbox’s Project Natal, uses no controller whatsoever, instead tracking the human body as the means for controls • Outside of the gaming industry, Toshiba has been developing their own hardware
Augmented Reality typically for navigation (GPS) that can reveal directions on a live video feed of your current location • isn’t limited to navigation only • Applications like Yelp for the iPhone streams reviews of restaurants • Nokia’s Point and Find allows users to find information about objects by pointing a phone camera • and other practical ideas may become a reality in the near future e.g. Wikitude Travel Guide – AR browser for Symbian
Wikitude – AR Navigation
Yelp AR Easter Egg
Neural Based Interfaces • It works by implanting a small microchip in the brain which analyzes pulses • The first tweet was sent via brain from the University of Wisconsin’s Neural Interface Lab • Another company, Braingate, has developed a similar technology that has allowed paralyzed participants to check email, or even play a game of pong using only their mind • Is still in it’s infant stages ‐ the average user can write at approximately 10 characters per minute it may allow paralyzed users to someday move certain muscles again, and perhaps even walk
The Brain Tweeter Interface
Computer (Inteligent) Wear
Voice Based Interfaces With New Applciations • Cell phones that recognize basic commands and names • Video games that respond to speech (“Tom Clancy’s: EndWar” can be controlled entirely by voice) • We’ve seen some innovative applications thus far: • MIT recently developed a wheelchair – it also saves detailed maps in memory and can take the user to their desired location via voice command • Relatively new application includes Google Mobiles “Search by Voice”
Surface Computing • Microsoft Surface • Light Touch™ instantly turns any flat surface into a touch screen • it could turn any surface into a smart surface using a webcam and projector • CRISTAL is a smart surface that takes on the form of a common table • this table can control many of the electronic devices in your room, such as TV’s, Sound Systems, Lights, Radios, and even DVD Players.
Light Touch – turns surface into a touch screen
2011 – We will touch the web enabled systems Lot of changes in design web user interface • Technologies are rapidly growing and there will be lot of changes in web applications. • Main menu loses its imporatnce. • Rich interactions & customizations will take place • Touch delivers revolution in interaction with web • We will lot of changes in Enterprise applciations with fully fledge integrations • On a fly performances & instant feedback
