Redux: Touch UI and the Art of Intent

Some very interesting research into touch UI from Microsoft Research, University of Toronto, and the good folks at Mitsubishi (MERL's been doing some great work) illustrates how to improve the precision and efficacy of touch screen computing. This isn't strictly a technology problem (touch screens are pretty accurate) - its a human factors problem (an affordance issue).

I wrote on this a while ago - the mouse is pretty accurate, but one of the significant reasons I think it succeeded as an "intuitive" input device was that it created an interface paradigm that allowed "intent".

Touch screens allow us to create programmable input devices (the hardwares becomes "soft" - the rest is just wiring) - I don't think its tactility that's makes it intriguing.

While the article posits that they solve the "fat fingering" problem by allowing the interactive to happen "above" your fingers - that is, you can touch the front *and* back of the screen, I'll posit that its actually the recapturing of *intent* in the interaction flow that makes the difference here.

Judge for yourself:



In any case, pretty cool.

Whether you’re interested in learning buy wow goldacoustic blues guitar, rock ‘n roll,cheap wow gold country-western, or jazz, guitar tabs can helpwow power leveling you get going on the songs you’re wow powerlevelinginterested in.Essentially, a guitar tab EverQuest platis a diagram of the fingerboardbuy eq gold (”neck”) of the guitar.EverQuest gold The horizontaleq plat lines of a guitar tab represent theeq gold strings, with the bottom line being the runescape goldlowest-pitched string on therunescape money guitar (E), and the top line being EverQuest 2 platthe highest stringeq2 plat (e, two octaves above). The firstmaplestory mesosstep in learning acoustic guitar tab is to get familiar with the open strings (E-A-D-G-B-E, from lowest to highest).maple mesosThe numbers on guitar tab Maple Story mesorepresent the frets where you place final fantasy 11 gilyour fingers to make the desired notes ffxi cheap gilfor the song you’re learning. cheap ffxi gilSo, if you see a tab with a “3″dofus kamas on the third string from the bottom, that meanskamas dofus you’re supposed to pressLOTR Gold the “D” string at the lord of the ring goldthird fret. If you see two or more numbers stacked flyff penyaon top of each other, that means you’re buy flyff goldpressing and playing more than one string at a time (this is how chords are often shownflyff money in tab). Reading from left to right Hero online goldwill result in playing the notes in the proper order for the tune you are learning.When you’re learning acoustic guitar tab, it’s best to stick with maple Story mesossongs that you’re already somewhat familiar with. The reason for this is that in tab notation, there’s not really any standard way of showing how long each note is supposed to be held. That’s not too much of a problem if you already have a pretty goodWarhammer gold idea of how the song is supposed to sound. But if you’re learning an unfamiliar song, acoustic guitar tab might not be the easiest method to use.Especially in rock, blues, and jazz, guitarists often use special techniques like “bending,” “sliding,” Buy Warhammer gold“hammer on,” and “pull off.” These are effects produced by pushing strings toward the middle of the neck on the same fret to raise or lower the pitch,ffxi gil sliding a finger on the same string from one fret to the next to change pitch, popping the finger down on a string to make a sound without strumming orLOTRO Gold plucking the string, or pulling the finger off the string just plucked to change the pitch suddenly. These are shown in various ways in acoustic guitar tab, and you can learn them once you’ve mastered the basics.

The "tone deaf" causesuy wow gold are very difficult to Warhammer goldidentify. Some of the singers always unable to sing in pitch every time without knowing reasons why.
