the iPad - an interface for Biologists? the iPad - an interface for Biologists? Presentation Transcript

  • the iPad: an interface for Biologists?
  • what is it?
  • The official description http://www.apple.com/ipad/features/
  • for biologists?
  • my ‘home’ screen
  • the usual stuff • Literature - Papers app • Websites - Safari Browser • News - News Rack, etc. • PDFs - GoodReader • Presentations - Keynote • Documents - Pages • Spreadsheet - Numbers
  • NewsRack NB: Use RSS to have literature (and news, etc) pushed to you, no need to go to PubMed all the time for your regular searches
  • DropBox ‘cloud storage’ of your files, with a copy on your desktop this is a good way to move things to the iPad. ‘Star’ the file to keep a copy on your iPad/iPhone rather than downloading from network
  • Papers
  • but what is it... ...really?
  • 9.7” touch screen
  • 9.7” touch screen WiFi Bluetooth, 3G
  • 9.7” touch screen WiFi Bluetooth, 3G GPS
  • 9.7” touch 16-64Gb screen WiFi Bluetooth, 3G GPS
  • 9.7” touch 16-64Gb screen Dock Audio in/out WiFi Bluetooth, 3G GPS
  • A thing you can touch that will hold lots of data, knows where it is, where its going and can access the web and anything* that you can find (or put) online *http://www.apple.com/hotnews/thoughts-on-flash/
  • Digital Interface the ‘real’ Korg Electribe
  • Digital Interface

  • other multitouch ideas http://www.ted.com/talks/jeff_han_demos_his_breakthrough_touchscreen.html
  • Data Review? Stacks of genes instead of photos? Show connections within & between stacks in real time? Sort/save like cards on a table, not with clicks and checkboxes.
  • Augmented Reality These are iPhone apps, but how about an iPad with a camera or external video feed + medical imaging
  • What else? • Implications of touch screen on user interface? • Change how we do (design) things? • Life beyond mouse + dropdowns, radio buttons, scroll bars! • Portable documents (iPad is big enough to read. Almost like...uh...paper but, brighter and more glossy! So what else should it do to leverage this new medium?) • Portable web connection (wifi/3G) - always online • Interface to hardware - what can we do with this? • Location - Field work, GPS coords of sample, patient, etc. • Clinical uses (will a normal web-style interface work?)
