“Her” movie future interfaces

Gestural, Interaction, Mobile, Patterns, User Experience

Movie is a little on the odd side plot-wise, but interface design ideas are pretty interesting.

Dominance of voice commands, simplistic shapes, a still present smartphone-like device (and a desktop computer one), total disconnect between the people who commute…

Also interesting is the ‘future retro’ style to the whole thing.

“Above the fold” origin

Information Design, Patterns

The term was first used in reference to traditional media, newspapers to be precise. The thinking is that newspapers are often delivered or displayed folded up and the area ‘above the fold’ will be the first that the reader sees and it is therefore a prominent and important location.
