TEWON35 prototype for Microsoft Surface from 2ndFactory
TEWON35 is a Travel Agency prototype application for Microsoft Surface from 2ndFactory.
The linked video shows interaction thought on how to take advantage of multi-touch along with physical objects. Here’s a few highlights from the prototype video:
- 1:30 – the circular calendar begins the experience
- 1:50 – the curving timeline is shown
- 2:30 – attractions are loaded using the wooden figures (I like the organic material touch)
- 4:00 – building on the familiar scatterview of photos to represent attractions, they use the backside of the photo to display text and videos about the attraction
- 6:10 – using a smooth casino dealer gesture, the selected attractions are spread out for resorting order
- 8:00 – the itinerary built is then saved to an encoded card for reuse
This reminds me of the Margie’s Travel Hands On Labs, but a way smoother version. A nice additional feature would be if the attractions would take up space relative to the time allotted to check out the attraction. I look forward to seeing this in a production form.
Hat tip to Ken Azuma for passing this along.
