AirType: wearable prototype for keyboardless typing

image

What if you can type on any surface to get rid of the pain of mobile phone typing? With the AirType project, this is a near possibility.

A Texas-based hardware and machine learning startup, AirType is developing a “keyboardless keyboard” accessory that allows you to type on any surface for your phone.

Unlike projection keyboards, the AirType project has no visual component. It uses a pair of cuff-like sensor units that go around your hands and over the knuckles. The units track your finger moments to detect which keys you are striking, or would strike, on your “invisible” mobile tablet keyboard.

According to the developers, the small AirType cuffs clip onto your tablet like a pair of friendly barnacles. The accessories would also come with an app that incorporates dynamic text correction and prediction, developers added.

According to the Air Type website, the system will learn to adjust to your typing habits. The project is now in the prototype stage.

10 Things Every Web Designer Should Know!

image

There are many aspects of creating a website design. Web designers often have to play multiple roles and be very knowledgeable about building effective and usable site layouts.

1.    Keep it Clean and Simple
A good web design is the one who is user-friendly, not the one that looks only visually appealing. A clean and simple web design usually ends up being a high-usability web design that is not confusing to interact with.
By having too many features and components on a page, you risk the chance of distracting your site audience from the purpose of the website. Make sure each page and its elements has a purpose and ask yourself the following questions:
•    Is this site clear and easy to navigate?
•    Does this site show what you offer?
•    If I remove this element all of a sudden, will most people want it back?
•    How does this element tie into the goal, message, and purpose of the site?

However, it may be super awesome to come up with a new concept or interface design pattern for your website, make sure that the design is still accessible and intuitive to your target audience. People are familiar to common interaction patterns, site features, and web interfaces – and if your design is truly unique, make sure it’s not dubious and puzzling.
Users must never wonder, even for a split of a second, “Where should I go? Or Why I am here?”
Be creative, keep it clean and simple.
2.    Optimize Web Graphics for Better Page Load Times
Use optimized web graphics for your web page by selecting the proper file format and make sure that it’s as small as it can possibly be. Even though people are advancing to broadband connections, but there are still quite a few who use dial-up internet connections or they don’t have access to fine bandwidth. Additionally, with the rise of mobile device technologies that don’t necessarily have broadband-like speeds, having slow page load times due to image file sizes can turn users leave your webpage.
A general rule of thumbs for picking the right file format: images that have solid colors are best saved as GIFs and PNGs, while images with continuous colors (such as photographs) are best saved as JPGs.
By limiting the number of images you use in the website / web design, and reducing file sizes as best as you can, you will significantly cut down page response times of a web page and improve your web page performance.

3.    Website Navigation
It’s very important to put nice efforts in planning on a site’s navigation structure. This is a common sense, but it’s still surprising how many web designs take site navigation for granted. Your navigation design should work on all platforms (browsers).
Navigation should be accessible and usable without the need for client-side technologies such as JavaScript or Flash, which users may not have enabled or installed in to their system or device.
Users must never wonder, even for a split of a second, “Where is the site navigation?”
The significant goal of your site navigation is to allow and guide users to get to their desired content with as few actions and with as little effort on their behalf as possible.
4.    Font Face Selection
There are thousands of font, Keep font usage consistent. Make sure that headings are visually-different from paragraph text. Use white space, adjust line-height, font-size, and letter-spacing properties to make content nice to feel and read effortlessly.
5.     Understand Color Accessibility
You need to consider color contrast of background and foreground colors for readability and for users with low-vision. For instance, black text on white background has a high-contrast, while orange text on red background will make stress to eyes.
Use colors that are accessible to every user with particular forms of color-blindness (check out a tool called Vischeck that will help you test for certain types of color-blindness).
Some color combinations work well only when the color is used as a foreground color instead of a background color. For example, brown text on orange background versus brown text on white background, same colors but different levels of readability and reading comfort.

One more example, yellow text and white background versus yellow text on purple background, same colors but different levels of readability and reading comfort.

It is important not only to get a good color combination but also to apply it to the right elements on the page.
6. Write worldwide.
As we all know that world wide websites are global. You should make sure that things like phrases, currencies, measurement units, dates, and times are clear so that all your readers know exactly what it mean.
7.    Simple Code with usable CSS
With numerous WYSIWYG editors it has become very simple to design a webpage. However, most of these editors insert unnecessarily junk code, making your HTML structure poorly designed, harder to maintain and update, and causing your file sizes to grow drastically.
By writing the code yourself, you come out with clean, crisp, and perfect code that’s a pleasure to read and maintain; code that you can be proud to call your own.
Knowing how to use a WYSIWYG or an IDE with a visual preview does not excuse you from learning HTML and CSS. You have to know what’s going on in order to create effective, semantic, and highly-optimized web designs.
8. Imagine your visitors like a Kid
People on an average spend only a few number of seconds for deciding whether they want to navigate or move to another site. Therefore, as a web designer you have to decide a way for encouraging and engaging users to navigate in your website within those precious seconds.
Being a designer, you must know that not many visitors will scroll down to view the entire contents of the page, if the content on the top does not interest them. Remember to keep your important elements on the top where they are easily visible and accessible, but also do not overload the top half of the page with irrelevant information. Consider the top half of a web design a marketing point: be a marketer, grab peoples’ view-point that they want to view what else is on your website.

9. Flexible, Upgradable and Maintainable
A good web designer makes sure that website design should easily be updatable and maintainable in the future. Designing websites that are flexible and easy to maintain is a sign of a great web designer. Make your work as segmental as possible by separating style from structure.
Knowing the fact that our industry is dynamic and still young – things change in a very short period of time, keeping in mind will endorse the creation of flexible web designs.
10.    Search Engine Optimization
A good designer should always remember to keep the basics of SEO in mind when designing a website. For example, structuring web content so that important text are represented as headings (i.e. page title, logo, headers, footers, etc.). This is where learning how to code properly comes in close. Knowing correct, semantic, and standards-based HTML/CSS – you will quickly realize that DIVs are better than tables for web layouts not only for accurate representation of site content, but also for search engine rankings; you will also know that alternate text for links and images is a good idea.

Learn More About (and Be Aware of) Browser Odds
One of the things you must know as a web designer is that your HTML/XHTML/CSS should work properly on all platforms, such as, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, IE6, and IE7+, Opera, Safari, and Maxthon. Before uploading – test your HTML & CSS on every possible platform

Design view and code view

While a visual tool is helpful, it can never represent your creativity, imagination and vision in full. That’s why you can flip back and forth between Design View and Code View as you work, immediately seeing any changes made to code reflected back in your designs.

 

2-tap_area_1Illustration tools

Import assets from any other creative suite or use the built-in illustration tools to create vector-style artwork – keeping your designs light. To create new HTML tags in your designs. The Pen tool lets you draw lines and curves by creating anchor points which are then connected by either straight or curved lines. Closed paths can also be created, to create shapes of great complexity. Along with the Drawing straight lines

Easy ad workflow

Google Web Designer makes it simple to publish ads through any platform. Choose from DoubleClick Studio or AdMob, or go for the Generic option to push content through any other ad network. No coding required.

 

5-code_screen_e_4Code Edit

Code view lets you create CSS, JavaScript, and XML files. Code view uses code auto completion which makes your code easier to write, with fewer errors. You can switch between Code view and Design view, with the changes that you make to the code in Code view reflected in the Design view. This lets you immediately test how changes in your code will affect your designs.

 

HTML5 is a universal language for building beautiful, engaging content that can run across desktops, smartphones, and tablets. We think that Google Web Designer will be the key to making HTML5 accessible to people throughout the industry, getting us closer to the goal of “build once, run anywhere.” – Sean Kranzberg, Lead Engineer, Google Web Designer

Are you a Geek or a Nerd? [infographic]

geek_nerd_hasanrasheed

Today, I have a pretty cool infographic for you guys, Geeks vs. Nerds, which one are you? We see them everywhere, geeks and nerds, maybe you even see them in your mirror, but how different are they really?

Traditionally most people don’t like being called geeks or nerds, but the derogatory connotations associated with these words are being cast away like sand in the hourglass these days.

Like it or not, but most people these days fall into one of two categories. Before Steve Jobs made computing devices beautiful, geeks and nerds were generally considered to be the same lifestyle choice.

Geeks are now considered to be those who have wrapped themselves around their specific lifestyle choice and are positive that they are experts on it. Nerds fall into the category of socially inept geniuses who flock to their PCs to update their version of Fedora (if you think a Fedora is just a hat, clearly you don’t fall into any of the two categories).

So, are you an iDevice-touting geek, or a Dungeons and Dragons-loving nerd? The infographic below outlines the pros and cons of both.

Do not offend when people give advice something for your design. Instead, you should be happy, you are getting a different perspective.
  4. Do Mistakes
    Do not be afraid to make mistakes and never afraid of failure. Learn from your mistakes and consider them as motivator for you to work better.
    “Never say you have failed 10 times, always say you have explored 10 new ways that do not work.” –Thomas Edison
  5. Try Always New
    Always experiment with new materials, processes and ideas. Remember, creativity has no boundaries, if you keep it in mind and make your believe strong, you could always work on originals.
  6. Listen to Nature
    Instead of staying in your four squared room, spend some time with nature to relax and free your mind from everything around you. Always wake up before the sun rise and go for prayer in the dark. Walk with nature’s breeze, it unwinds, you will find it enjoyable for a lot of new ideas come out.
  7. Read
    Reading gives new ideas. Reading (books or blogs) exercise brain, which motivates, inspires and fill brain with vital information that may revive your creativity.

    Take little nap. That helps the most to retrieve your energy and boost your capabilities. Take steam back or hot shower, it circulates the blood more efficiently and regain the body’s metabolism. And remember to turn off your phone.
  9. Look at Old Photos
    Bring out old photos from your childhood or the photos from a fun trip you had or the photos of your children childhood. Remembering and recalling the treasured moments through photographs will make you smile and relax for sure.
  10. Look Things from Different Perspectives
    Put yourself on the shoes of others. Contemplate how a kid, a teacher, a businessman, or a client will look at your design. Criticize your work. You’ll never know how much it helps to improve your own work.
  11. Stay Focused
    Do not do multi-tasks. It decreases the quality production of your mind. Stay focused to improve the productivity.
  12. Enjoy What You Are Doing
    The top most important secret to success is to love what you do. Be nice when you do mistakes, do not get angry or depressed. You will notice if you have peace while working, you can produce better results.
    “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.” – Steve Jobs
  13. Play and Have Fun
    When you (or your boss or your clients) are not happy with your output, take break. Play board games or video games. And also try doing something that you always wanted to but never get a chance. This will refresh and boost your mind and regain your energy

Top 25 Gadgets of 2012 (Part V)

icons-390 (1)

 

  1. Nintendo Wii U
    With the Wii U, Nintendo has added a tablet-like touchscreen element to its motion-sensing control system. As a solo player, in games like Zombi U, you’re now forced to juggle visually between the TV and your touchscreen at crucial moments. Even more innovative, so far, has been the GamePad’s use in multi-player-where one player can play a different role to others, using the touchscreen to gain extra information or work against other players.There are issues, however.
    There’s not many games worthy of the technology yet; there’s new consoles from Sony and Microsoft coming in 2013; and, most dangerous of all, the Wii U’s chief competition is increasingly the touchscreen tech found in smartphones and tablets. How many of us need a dedicated console and an iPad, after all? (from From $299)

  2. Cadillac CUE

    As cars become gadgets on wheels, automakers have been challenged to integrate cellular connectivity and complex user interfaces into the car. Some companies have stumbled, and some have excelled. With the Cadillac CUE, GM and Cadillac fall into the latter. With its capacitive, multi-gesture touchscreen, haptic feedback, cloud-based OnStar service, natural-speech recognition, attention to driver safety, and a flexible HTML 5 platform, the Cadillac CUE should serve as a benchmark for the rest of the automotive industry.

  3. Thermador Freedom Induction Cooktop

    The Thermador Freedom Induction Cooktop is a technological leap forward for home cooking‹instead of discrete heating elements, the cooktop senses induction-compatible cookware placed anywhere on its surface. The touch-sensitive display shows where each pot and pan is situated, maintaining their power level even as they slide around. It also has a Boost feature, which redirects up to 30 percent of the power from one half of the surface to the other, for even faster heating.

  4. HP ENVY x2

    The aptly-named ENVY x2 is going to make a lot of laptops jealous. At first blush, it looks like a thin, brushed-metal machine. But when you flip a slick magnetic toggle and lift out the 11.6-inch display, you suddenly get it – this Hybrid PC packs all the important guts you need behind the screen. Are you the kinda guy that’s constantly debating whether to take a laptop, tablet (or both!) for the day? Here’s your next PC.

  5. Asus Padfone2

    Another sleek design but a complete game shifter, its an android powered smartphone with a tablet dock, instant data transition from 4.7” phone to 10.1” PadFone 2 Station for an expanded view with the layout optimized for pad mode for easy reading. Ultra-thin and light combination at just 9mm and weighing a mere 135g for PadFone 2, and 514g for PadFone 2 Station. It has the fastest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ S4 quad-core CPU at 1.5GHz with 2GB RAM. It has 720p high-speed recording at 60fps and 100 consecutive photo captures at 6fps, coupled with 30% enhanced color and contrast. Enjoy super long 3G talk time of up to 16 hours with the PadFone 2’s 2,140mAh battery. Extend the talk time to 36 hours by tapping into the additional battery in the PadFone 2 Station. ASUS also providing 50GB of WebStorage free for two years. Eliminate the hassle of synchronization when the two devices are connected as all storage is inside the phone. And it packed with amazing apps like SuperNote, the SuperNote app instantly converts handwritten notes made in multiple languages into editable text. Instant Translation tool also translates any word, phrase or sentence in an email, web page or app at a touch.
