Make It So: Learning From Sci-fi Interfaces

Thursday, May 23, 2013 2:00 PM - 2:45 PM
Kool Haus

Inspired by Nathan Shedroff and Christopher Noessel’s book of the same name, Make It So explores the relationship between science fiction and interface design. In this session, Shedroff shows how sci-fi's imagined interfaces have influenced real world innovation, and vice versa. His research yields practical and eye-opening lessons applicable to the design and understanding of online, social, mobile and other media interfaces. He'll explain what’s more for show — like Minority Report gestural tech — and unlikely to really take off, and what will have more practical applications when it comes to consumer use.
