photoshopsecrets:

I guess the fact that I write this blog makes it obvious how much I love Photoshop. It’s my tool of choice for designing icons and complex UI.

The new Photoshop CC will bring one new amazing feature, editable rounded rectangles! But there are a few more features that would make Photoshop even better for UI and Graphic Designers:

Prototype Real / Digital Info Interface System

Using projection and gestures to create interactive relationship with information - video embedded below:

Fujitsu Laboratories has developed a next generation user interface which can accurately detect the users finger and what it is touching, creating an interactive touchscreen-like system, using objects in the real word.

“We think paper and many other objects could be manipulated by touching them, as with a touchscreen. This system doesn’t use any special hardware; it consists of just a device like an ordinary webcam, plus a commercial projector. Its capabilities are achieved by image processing technology.”

Using this technology, information can be imported from a document as data, by selecting the necessary parts with your finger.

met with ryan today (after a month of scheduling in advance). i thought i was ready for a presentation somewhat…but looks like i’m hitting the ground and sprinting faster. nauseous, but i’m confident that i can impress the committee. back to after effects.

raw footage from my trip to verducci entertainment in berkeley, ca. observing DJ LA (lawrence arevalo) in set up/turntable action.

possible footage needed for concept video:

  • walking in to room
  • turning on light
  • computer turning on
  • turntable start
  • digging through crates/software
  • searching for song
  • map DJ using surface
  • add tracks to surface, animate transition change 

think about: legibility

  • test text
  • unify actions
  • two icons
  • social module - should we limit it to just tweets?
  • capitalize on the fact that green = active
  • circles in social module may clash too much, unless we unify things.
the first possible date for review. crunch time, NOW.
