Is it about to change?

Sooner than you think.


Imagine a timestamp that lies ahead of us. A future where tapping on the keyboard tends to be the bare minimum when cellphone devices are old-timers and every gesture you carry can assist you to interact with the new generation of interfaces. An interface that is no more confined to your current finite screens.

You and I are aware of how a person may perceive something which is designed for them, we are not always right the first time, but the more iterations the better. I am curious about the change that will outgrow our current understanding of how a human interacts with a screen. It is well understood that this screen has some finite dimensions and is supposed to be held in hand or placed on a desk to be used comfortably, and joyfully. Try to recall tasks you perform using screens for a moment, well that’s pretty much everything, from ordering food to attending business meetings. All that is there stays on the screen.

Let’s look at the above-mentioned timestamp, where humans are wearing a pair of glasses, enabling their eyes to notice presented digital signifiers around them, maybe a button that says ‘OK’ or, ‘Confirm’ half a foot distant from their torso suspended in the air tapped by extending the arms and not just fingers. Catching a glimpse of it in Sci-fi motion pictures might help you visualize such a device and scenario. The technology which can support such an ecosystem might carry a great understanding of how a person wakes up, sits, walks, eats, runs, gets crazy, or sets an alarm before sleeping. A time when our devices adapt to our own way of living and not us adapting to the way our current devices demand us to behave. Where “Less is more”, is a broader demand for technical assistance but with a minimalistic approach. Where devices grow short and the assistance from it becomes even greater. That huge shift in human behaviour will generate numerous new possibilities to mark the growing need for user experience design. Someone has to design that, who will it be? Can that be you? I think it will be us both and many more designers like us.

Well then, as a designer this excites me to the core, to keep noticing how gradually this evolved way of interaction will grow even further. So will it be ok to say sooner or later you will see a transformation in user needs? You will gradually notice how humans are adapting to the new way of redoing things, definitely not similar to their previous habits. Is the designer in us curious to face these greater challenges? Are we ready to understand the change in human needs?

To our rescue, artificial intelligence is potentially getting stronger each day and will definitely reduce physical efforts, simply offering more time for us to understand future mysteries about human behaviour and generate ideas to counter the gaps in experience. Do not forget to iterate over and over to learn and generate even better.

Until next time.
