Into (Your) Face

A really nice interface design that I noticed on Berg London Blog:

Chris Harrison’s Abracadabra is a prototype interface for very small devices. What might a rich interface for a device too small for a touchscreen look like? Harrison’s interface is based upon magnets: a tiny magnet on the fingertip, detected by a two-axis magnetometer in the device – providing enough sensitivity to track movements in a horizontal plane, as well as a “clicking” action in the z-axis. Extending the space of physical interaction outside the device makes a lot of sense, and it’ll be interesting to see where this kind of interface goes in the next few years.

Hope you enjoy

A nice surprise @ Hard Rock Cafe shop

I saw this nice interaction @ Hard Rock Cafe shop while I was waiting around before a gig.

This screen displays the whole collection of memorabilia. You touch the item you want to find out about and it will bring up a large image and information of what the item is.

Also if you want to find out about a certain band you can search for the band of choice as image below.

Hope you enjoy, I did when I was having a go.

I am giving this a stab

Hi, hope this post finds you well.

just been told to use this process to evolve my idea for my current project...


Looks really interesting and a fun way to come up with some creative solutions.

I will post mt results of my serious play with lego.

My attention was drawn to this piece of design work...

A new self check in service by Qantas

This a relevant piece for my current project (which I will writing at the end of the month). Just thought I would share this as it is a step forward to the airport becoming a nicer experience.
