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 methods of interacting with content using multitouch gestures. The concept of “heating up” and radial menus are particularly interesting in this video. Enjoy!
