Future of interaction

A brief rant on the future of interaction design by Bret Victor

As it happens, designing future interfaces for the future used to be my line of work. I had the opportunity to design with real working prototypes, not green screens and After Effects, so there certainly are some interactions in the video which I’m a little skeptical of, given that I’ve actually tried them and the animators presumably haven’t.


But that’s not my problem with the video Productivity Future Vision (2011).


I’m going to talk about that neglected third factor, human capabilities. What people can do. Because if a tool isn’t designed to be used by a person, it can’t be a very good tool, right?
