User interfaces for tablet devices

by Randy Tsang

Here is an extremely interesting video by BERG and the Swedish publisher Bonier R&D that discusses the UX design challenges that are being presented to us by the wave of upcoming tablet devices. Whether the iPad is successful or not I believe that tablet computing devices are going to be hugely popular over the upcoming months and years (see a previous post on the Apple iPad). The task facing UX designers is to come up with new ┬ámethods of interacting with content using multitouch gestures. The concept of “heating up” and radial menus are particularly interesting in this video. Enjoy!
