Interface Input Experimentation

Less than a week ago IDEO began a quick open project with Bug Labs, makers of the BUGbase. For those unfamiliar with Bug Labs or their product, here’s a quick overview:

The project is a quick + deep exploration of the BUGbase, focused on re-envisioning the interface with an eye toward integrating new display and input technologies. We expect outcome to feel less like a finished product and more like a concept car — something that will help us learn from users and inform future designs.

This is an experiment on another level too: BugLabs is all about open source, even when it comes to this design project, and that means we have a unique opportunity to invite anyone interested in BUGbase to join us in the process. We’re keeping a dedicated blog here, and have already posted some initial interface concepts. With your feedback, we will devote the remainder of this week to focusing and detailing one or two directions and exploring the feasibility of the associated industrial design and housing-modification solutions.

If you’re interested in Bug Labs or want to participate in the design work we’re doing with them, we invite you to join us at BUG + IDEO.

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog such as yours take a lot of work?
    I’m completely new to running a blog however I do write in my journal every day.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience
    and views online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog
    owners. Thankyou!

    A fascinating discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you need
    to write more about this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but usually people don’t speak about such topics.
    To the next! Kind regards!!

    Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess
    I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any recommendations for rookie
    blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.
