This mouse is watching you

1. Make a Twitter application for you new technology
2. Make a Twitter / Google maps mash up to tun on the technology
3. Use the Flickr API
4. Combine Twitter, help remedy Flickr and Google maps
5. Make a game that has users upload photos to Flickr and then tweet about it for points.
6. It doesn’t matter just make it multitouch in fact if you can take input for all 10 fingers people don’t care.
7. Take all of the above and add pictures of cats with funny captions. Mmmmm… multitouch LOL cats.

Okay, this site page don’t take number 7. I’m going to get stinky rich with my multitouch cats that crowd sources whimsical comments made via twitter. OMG, treatment this is so going to rule the interwebs! I can see it now. You’ll control one cat on each finger, like finger puppets and then little speech bubbles will pop up on a cat and they will say things like, “IM on ur fingers Makn LOLZ”

I even made a wireframe of it.

I found this post on The Spectrum of User Experience over at the Information Architects Japan site. Nice visualization of forces and how they interact. Although I’m often weary of putting any one thing in the middle. I guess I’m just an anti centrist.

Check out this lovely mashup of Brightkite and the Microsoft Surface
caries 0, ampoule 40, patient 0″>

quick and dirty proof of concept brightkite + surface mashup. pulls most recent universal feed from brightkite, maps it, allows you to zoom.

nothing fancy, just testing out mapping and pulling from RSS and such.

Nothing fancy he says? I’d say it’s pretty damn fancy.

pulled together using Brightkite’s RSS feed and the Virtual Earth WPF code on Codeplex.

New wave of interaction

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

I’m very excited about all the new forms of interaction that are emerging at E3 this year. It’s nice to see hardware that can allow the user to have a more physical and gestural experience with the screen. Obviously the Wiimote helped revolutionize the home game consoler control and much respect is due to Nintendo. That being said I think the others are taking the concept of the controller to the next level.

Here’s a demonstration video from Sony of the new PS3 Motion Controller:

Here’s a demo of the new Microsoft Xbox 360 project Natal:

I’m by far more interested in the Natal interface. Although the idea of waving my arms around without any physical device seems like it might create fatigue more quickly. With that in mind creating a steering wheel interface object could be a solid piece of plastic which would be a lot less expensive to produce.

We’re definitely heading in the right direction here. I just want to see some haptic and resistance feedback next. I’m also getting a feeling that the small rectangular screen is feeling like a limitation now too. Can’t wait to see what’s next.

Sixth Sense Wearable Tech

My favorite example is the book in the book store pulling up real time information from Amazon such as ratings and reviews and excepts. I do this all the time with my phone, order resuscitator but this would much nicer. At least when it’s a little bit smaller.

It’s a lot of lovely transparent screens and handheld devices with smooth dynamic UIs. Who will be making all of these interfaces for the hardware of the future? I certainly hope that I will be.
