Touch screens, physical sensors and hardware miniaturization have greatly enhanced the personal connection between ourselves and our digital devices. Mapping physical input to UI/UX, operating systems now simulate natural systems. We swipe, shake, push and pinch as willing participants in a simulation meant to mirror our physical world.
In this talk, we’ll examine in detail the special qualities of natural looking motion and how a simple combination of forces can lure our perception. We’ll focus specifically on natural coding in a web browser and how we can overcome the challenges browsers present. Finally, we’ll look at how applying a natural coding approach to prototyping can expand the creative possibilities of the products we create on both desktop and mobile platforms.
