Airplanes: Sailboats :: Mobile : Desktop

Published on

A foundational user experience talk.
What if the way that airplanes were designed and how it improved sailing had some deep lessons around the future of user experience? Sailboats improved significantly after the discovery of flight, and mobile design is improving a great deal of user experience as well. How can we think about applying these lessons? What's still missing?

  20. 20. W I K I P E D I A S AY S : Another way to say this is that sails generate lift using the air that flows around them in the same way as an aircraft wing.

O N E T H I N G L E A D S T O A N O T H E R Computational Fluid Dynamics allows the calculation of the lift, drag and centres of effort of a sailing rig and will inherently account for the complex interaction between sails http://www.dynamic-fluid-design.com/conventionalsails.html Before Airplanes:
  24. 24. R I G I D W I N G D E S I G N S While experience with wing sails has been gained in the smaller c-class wing sail boats, Computational Fluid Dynamical modelling of wing sails can aid in the understanding of the complex interaction between the multi-element rigid wing sails and the conventional flexible foresail. http://www.dynamic-fluid-design.com/wingsails.html After Airplanes:
