'Connecting' Short Film | UI Trends, Interaction, Experience Design

Connecting is a short film that explores trends in UI, Interaction, & Experience Design

"The 18 minute "Connecting" documentary is an exploration of the future of Interaction Design and User Experience from some of the industry's thought leaders. As the role of software is catapulting forward, Interaction Design is seen to be not only increasing in importance dramatically, but also expected to play a leading role in shaping the coming "Internet of things." Ultimately, when the digital and physical worlds become one, humans along with technology are potentially on the path to becoming a "super organism" capable of influencing and enabling a broad spectrum of new behaviors in the world."

An interesting watch - these videos are part of a series created by Christian Svanes Kolding (@cskolding) that explore 'what makes great interaction design?' The films were created for the Interaction Design Association & accompany Febuary's first annual Interaction Awards, in Dublin this year.

"Immersive Rail Shooter, or IRS reformulates virtual elements of shooter video games and gives to physical objects a tangible interface dimension. Between augmented virtuality and mixed reality, IRS uses the space as playground and engages the player body in an intense rail shooter game."
