A futuristic communication interface from the Fritz
Lang film Metropolis
SciFi and other speculative interfaces can unlock possibilities for new interactions in any product or service. Interfaces from SciFi films offer examples to real world design issues that are humorous, prophetic, inspiring, and practical to interaction designers – these interfaces are fun, inspiring examples and reflections of current interface understanding.
In their workshop on “How to Use Scifi to Create Better Interfaces”, the duo of Nathan Shedroff and Chris Noessel’s will share lessons culled from imaginative interfaces unbound from traditional constraints, with examples and prompts for attendees to brainstorm around these lessons to unlock new aspects of their existing projects.
All levels of experience can benefit from this unique perspective and gain valuable insights. Likewise, any product or service interface can be enhanced with these lessons.
