What was once seen as a highly academic practice is now recognized as critical to designing products. And not just the latest in high tech consumer electronics (TVs, mobile phones, tablets) but everyday products, environments and information.

Interaction Design is also a key component driving accessibility of data, simplifying how we access and utilize it. Data that is live now – not days, months or years old.

This short film, “Connecting”, presents refreshing views by some of the industry’s thought leaders. It is a great reminder for us to continue working on the next paradigms for interacting with physical products, information, environments and people.

Also, it’s OK to acknowledge that proposed interfaces and behaviors need to evolve over time as people accept them, but we should still aim to ditch the ‘fake analog’ in our digital screens… now.
