Jinha Lee: Reach into the computer and grab a pixel

The border between our physical world and the digital information surrounding us has been getting thinner and thinner. Designer and engineer Jinha Lee wants to dissolve it altogether. As he demonstrates in this short, gasp-inducing talk, his ideas include a pen that penetrates into a screen to draw 3D models and SpaceTop, a computer desktop prototype that lets you reach through the screen to manipulate digital objects.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.

Shneiderman’s Eight Golden Rules of Interface Design

Shneiderman’s Eight Golden Rules of Interface Design

Shneiderman’s “Eight Golden Rules of Interface Design”

These rules were obtained from the text Designing the User Interface by Ben Shneiderman. Shneiderman proposed this collection of principles that are derived heuristically from experience and applicable in most interactive systems after being properly refined,…

Complete Beginner’s Guide to Interaction Design

Interaction design has its origins in web and graphic design, but has grown into a realm of its own. Far from merely working with text and pictures, interaction designers are now responsible for creating every element on the screen that a user might swipe, click, tap, or type: in…

Natural User Interface: a leap forward

One of the characteristics of a successful natural interface is the reduction of cognitive load on people interacting with it

Sometimes in some my projects I’m really fascinated of how the world of User Interfaces is evolving. Most of us who are involved in prototyping deal mainly with web-interfaces…

The company has dubbed this new font cleverly as “Phonetikana,” where each katakana character featured a few English letters to help English speakers say the word properly.

The company…

MIT discovers the location of memories: Individual neurons | ExtremeTech

A transgenic mouse hippocampus

MIT researchers have shown, for the first time ever, that memories are stored in specific brain cells. By triggering a small cluster of neurons, the researchers were able to force the subject to recall a specific memory. By removing these neurons, the subject…
