Event: The Microsoft PhizzPop Design Challenge

This is a long post but might be of interest to those folks that liked the Express Yourself event Microsoft hosted back in June of this year. We're doing 5 more of these (Austin, Boston, Chicago, Las Angeles, New York City). For those that want to cut to the chase you can register by going to: http://designchallenge.phizzpop.com/

So I've been at Microsoft a little over a year now.

Graduate Research Survey (wearable computing devices)

My current research focus is interaction design of wearable devices. For my
most recent work I have posted a survey to better understand individual
tasks and behaviors toward computing devices.

Average time to complete survey is 5 minutes.

If you provide your email at the end of the survey you will be entered into
a raffle for an $25.00 amazon.com gift certificate.

This is not spam.

touch screen kiosk accessiblity

Hi folks,

Does anyone have any ideas on how to ensure physical/navigational
accessibility on a touch screen (Apple) display?

I'm working on a design specification and accessibility plan for a
museum in the UK that is particularly sensitive to access issues. So
far, my only thought has been to provide a keyboard or trackball
device in addition to the touch screen.

Microsoft Sync article in the Seattle Times

There was an interesting article today in the automotive section of
the Seattle Times about Microsoft Sync. It's a set of voice-activated
controls installed in a 2008 Ford Focus. Mark Phelan, the Detroit Free
Press reviewer, thought it worked pretty well (better than the car it
was installed in). Don't know if maybe a few 'softies on this list
might have worked on the project and would like to comment.
