iSlate, interactivity and the era of intimate interfaces

Bonnier R&D came up with the following great concept for an e-Magazine Reader that offers great colors, animations, user interface and reading experience.

We at Harbinger are passionate about interactivity and user experience, and have built great user experiences like flip-book on desktop, web and iPhone. The advent of a new breed of devices with touch-screen, accelerometer, GPS etc. opens up great opportunities for software product vendors to create wonderful user experiences. After all, we humans have a fascination with intimate interfaces on flat surfaces to do our work on – think of the amount of time we spend on papers, boards, desks and pads. The computer just had it coming!

So, 2010 is touted to be the year of what is variously named as tablets, slates or pads, and Apple is rumored to be announcing an ‘iSlate‘ this January. Do you think 2010 will be the year when the computer finally starts going flat?

    the answer is a resounding yes! Someone’s gotta start thinking of computers as pads that we can work on. And I tihnk Apple would be the one that would start this revolution with iSlate..
