Remote Control

I have been testing a touch screen remote (Marantz/Phillips) as part of my
research. Of the 100+ people that have done my experiments, only about 10
of them did not find divided attention an issue. They get very absrobed in
the small touch screen and have to be prompted to look at the TV screen to
do part of the task (setting VCR clock via on-screen menu).

However, the remote is very versatile if you have a lot of devices (eg home
theatre), especially high end devices with a lot of options.

Newbie IA with flash questions


I'm a bit of a newbie; I'm still in school, and this is my second time
posting to the group. I'm trying to expand my flash skills, and so am using
flash to design some buttons that will be at the bottom of a homepage I am

When clicked, one button will open a pop-up window. I'm using JavaScript in
my html to create a menu that has no scroll bar, no menu bar, etc.

But back to the point: I don't have much practice incorporating flash files
into my html.

Any more Interaction Design Awards coming up?

Need some advice/suggestions from this group. Few months ago, I sent in
my design for the DIS 2004 Interaction Design Award and couldn't make it
in the final cut. Although I was aware that DIS is a very competitive
conference, I never thought about what I would do with the design if I
don't make it there. Can you think of a competition where I can submit
my design or make better use of it? The design is conceptual in nature
and demonstrates its interactions with the help of flash animation.
