Touchy feely design

Advancing rapidly is the way designers will work conceptually – there are technological promises that will make the process more intuitive and less restrictive with the use of the computer. Mice and tablets have certainly had their place but time is calling for a new approach. We’re all familiar with touch screens and now the iPhone, and in the last 2 years we have seen the increased development of the multi-screen monitors – where the user can manipulate the content on the screen with their fingers to scale, move and colour objects.

It is now a matter of time before developers create the ultimate user interface for designers with this very fast moving technology. Below is an example of the technology demonstrated for use in architecture. Find out more on how this technology works at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-touch also see http://www.multitouch.fi


The world wide wonder of design

The internet appears to be one of those curious devices that evolved from apparently no where and now is the one thing that binds the world together – some would say the most impressive and important invention of the 20th century – and no where is design more prevalent than here – it has truly opened up the world for design and advanced it beyond anyone’s imagination.

But where did it all begin? This video will shed light on the world wide web’s evolution.
