I was just wondering what people thought about the new Microsoft
Surface. Has anyone had a chance to demo it or play with the SDK?
Also, any thoughts on how interaction design will be impacted with MS
Surface technology being used with Windows 7 (due out late 09 early
10)? What preemptive measures can we take to deal with the shift in
how a user interacts (touch screen vs mouse) with applications on
there desktop pc or laptop?
IxDA NL and Chi Nederland, the Dutch local chapter of ACM SIGCHI, organize an international conference on interaction design. This event, by the name of 'Design by Fire conference', offers an inspiring stage for interaction, information, interface and experience designers.
After the success in 2007 a second edition was inevitable. We are very pleased with the speakers on the program for this year:
:: Brendan Dawes, Creative Director for magneticNorth (UK), will take care of an inspiring keynote titled 'C30, C60, C90, GO!'.
