As a user of different technologies, products and tools I am continuously interacting with interfaces which allow me to take control of them. I sometimes also have to struggle with them!
My eyes cross checking the parameters of the control panel of my single seat aircraft making sure that they’re all green; my hands exerting light pressure on the cyclic and collective pitch to maintain the steady hovering of my military transport helicopter despite the wind; visualizing the complexities of a comprehensive financial situation through a simple graphic; browsing and setting up my operating system to make it mine; the softness of my fingers on the keys of the piano to evoke the sound I desire.
Designing the right interface for your tools is the key of their success.
What would have become of the wheel if we hadn’t invented the steering wheel?
I love interfaces. They make you feel in control and allow you to use tools as extensions of yourself.
Simplicité et ergonomie pour faire corps avec la machine.
