Nice Input Device - I/O Brush


Scroll for videos

"Most drawing tools/pens we use today allow only a one-way flow of
ink, and we are oblivious to how the content of the tool came to
exist inside. What if we could not only have control over the outflow
of the ink, but also have influence on what goes inside? Indeed, old
fountain pens served as both tools to pick up and release the ink,
and paintbrushes still preserve that function.

'interaction design'?

im a student in the crossroads of turning into a professional ;)
i have few unanswered questions to discuss...

Part one:
Till some time back.. I was pretty clear of the word 'interaction design'.
till I saw some works loosely replacing this word with things done by HCI
professionals and UI designers.

Now...I am little confused abt this word 'interaction design'..What does
this word 'interaction design' mean to people in the profession?

Part two:
Interaction design deals with interaction, function, usage, aesthetics,
and culture.

Question about display of date select functionality

I need some help.

I am working on an application that requires the user to select a
start and stop date. This function is similar to a travel sites'
Depart Date and Return Date fields. The main difference is that we
want to constrain the dates that can be select to only those dates
that the user receives service.

I immediately wanted a calendar display because it provides context
to service periods and days of the week.

Feature control on user interfaces

Hi All,

As applications grow, so does the demand for new features. I am curious
about two things. In the industry:

[1] What methods are used to determine the most "used" features as opposed
to the most "wanted" features?
[2] How often is this process repeated?

Any pointers will be appreciated.

"The tiny things matter" - a UX story

We all have these stories, I suspect. A friend wrote this up and I'm
passing it along, with his permission, anonymized.

He was buying a new car - fairly high end, significant purchase:

"The choice came down to [Car A], which is an updated version of my
old car, or the [Car B]. I love love loved the feel of spaciousness in
[Car B], I could have used the cargo space, and the user interface
with the nav/audio screen is stunning.
