Transcript of 2. Physical Interfaces

Physical Interfaces
three key principles...
affordance
where the physical characteristics influence function
constraints
a method of limiting the actions that can be performed on a system
physical
semantic
driver's position
head/tail lamp
cultural
symbols and words MAY have accepted meanings
these can get lost though...
symbols - cultural
physical constraints
semantic
physical constraints
mapping
square array
linear array
the relationship between controls and their movements or effects
some other techniques...
operant conditioning
a technique used to modify behaviour
reinforce and reward desired behaviours
punish undesired behaviours
form follows function
the suggestion that beauty in design relates to purity of function
mimicry
copying the properties of familiar objects
(kind of like cultural constraints)
to make them easier to understand
visibility
the usability of a system is improved when it's status and methods of use are clearly visible
proximity
elements close together are perceived to be related
similarity
similar objects seem related
also a method for differentiation
golden ratio
1: 1.618
symmetry
a property of visual equivalence in form
ie, to stop people getting things wrong!
things in the world that might stop us
things we know to be true (assumptions)
things we learn. WARNING - they might be different to other people!
the poker machine is designed to reward play, and therefore take more money!
(epic) fail
much better!
