9780133890334: The Best Interface Is No Interface: The simple path to brilliant technology (Voices That Matter)


Our love affair with the digital interface is out of control. We’ve embraced it in the boardroom, the bedroom, and the bathroom.

Screens have taken over our lives. Most people spend over eight hours a day staring at a screen, and some “technological innovators” are hoping to grab even more of your eyeball time. You have screens in your pocket, in your car, on your appliances, and maybe even on your face. Average smartphone users check their phones 150 times a day, responding to the addictive buzz of Facebook or emails or Twitter.

Are you sick? There’s an app for that! Need to pray? There’s an app for that! Dead? Well, there’s an app for that, too! And most apps are intentionally addictive distractions that end up taking our attention away from things like family, friends, sleep, and oncoming traffic.

There’s a better way.
  
 In this book, innovator Golden Krishna challenges our world of nagging, screen-based bondage, and shows how we can build a technologically advanced world without digital interfaces.

In his insightful, raw, and often hilarious criticism, Golden reveals fascinating ways to think beyond screens using three principles that lead to more meaningful innovation. Whether you’re working in technology, or just wary of a gadget-filled future, you’ll be enlighted and entertained while discovering that the best interface is no interface.

Product Description:

Over thirty years ago, something remarkable happened. Researchers at a Xerox lab laid the foundations for the first mainstream graphical user interface, which took the experience of using a computer a galactic leap forward. All of a sudden we were able to drag and drop. Point and click. The powerful tools of the computer were more accessible to everyone.

But sadly, today things have taken a turn for the worse. The technology industry’s love for the digital interface has grown out of control, and it’s diverting us away from meaningful solutions for most people. How many of us really need to read tweets on our refrigerator doors? Or Facebook updates within the speedometer of our cars? How many of us think that what made our hotel stay incredible was a 55” touchscreen in the lobby with USA Today headlines?

There’s a better path: No UI. Expanded from one of the most shared design essays of the last decade, and one of the most popular talks at design conferences around the world, this book will explain why the best interface is no interface. It’ll walk you through how you can practice the new, radically simple design methodology for incredible technology that Google executive Eric Schmidt has described as the future of technology. The results can have a profound impact on your design process and on our lives.

Product Description:

 

Our love for the digital interface is out of control.



Expanded from one of the most shared design essays ever written, and one of the most popular talks at innovation conferences around the world, this entertaining and visionary book offers a compelling new way to see the future of technology.

 

Digital interfaces today consume our lives. The average adult today spends over eight hours a day staring at a screen, and some apparent technological innovators are hoping for more. They’re making screens for your wrist, face, and car; and creating apps that try to get you addicted so they can boost their advertising revenue. Innovation has become Facebook updates inside cars, refrigerators that send tweets, and garbage cans that show us the current weather.

 

There’s a better path.

 

In this raw and delightful critique, learn the fascinating ways to think beyond screens using three principles that can lead us toward more meaningful innovation. Whether you’re working in the technology industry or just concerned about our technological future, you’ll find this insightful and creative book captivating.
