BUY ME #mundaneaday off to Stockholm for an intense methodology course with #hyperisland which I’m pretty pumped about BUT first I have had to crawl through the lower intestines of consumerism - known as duty free, I’m never sure what grips people into a buying fever of Superdry, perfume and BOGOFF deals on sunglasses… Ok the sunglasses if you jetting off to sunny climes I accept… Let’s face it I have a coronary entering the Trafford centre so having to scamper through the over lit, generously perfumed canals of duty free is never going to be my thing… Although I have just realised I forgot my rubber and oh look a handy WHSmiths… Who’d of thought… #handrendered #type #lettering #graphicdesign #typespire #typedaily
“There’s never a wrong idea. You just keep throwing stuff out and inevitably there are elements of different things that inspire a character or environment.”
– John Lasseter (via disneypixar)
Its not ALL fun and games at Hyper Island…. sometimes its fun and making games….
Heres part of MakeyMakey week
LEARNING: DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY IS ABOUT DISRUPTION. IF YOU DON’T DISRUPT, YOU WILL BE DISRUPTED.
"How to use digital technology to create services and products that bring real value to the people? How to come up with a solution that is rather an unique interaction experience than a common brand communication measure? How to connect digital and physical world on new innovative interfaces that are embedded in our daily environment?
Today we used "Makey Makey" to create new interfaces: playing piano on bananas or controlling pac man by touching a table.
The challenge is to create interfaces, where the user doesn’t recognizes he interacts with a computer. The interaction, the experience is in the focus, not the machine.”
