"Touch and Beyond: New Forms of Interactions": Gestural Ideation Workshop

Led by Prarthana Panchal and Joyce Chou

Mobile device usage is rapidly evolving beyond touch interaction with a screen. With increasing amounts of information complexity, we won’t be able to rely on fixed input methods. The next big challenge in mobile user experiences is about designing for interactions that break out of the screen. Kinetic UI explores the intersection of the mobile GUI and physical input methods.

This workshop will provide techniques for designing for kinetic experiences and will walk you through our process from exploration to final concepts. We will look at the possibilities when you leverage physical gestures to design UI, without the constraints of a small-device screen.
