Touchscreen interfaces

Tom at IRBW has posted some guidelines on creating online help for touchscreen applications.

It’s interesting timing, as that’s a task that I’ve been currently tackling. If human factors standards are being used, it’s an exceptionally difficult challenge to meet.

I’ll be sharing some lessons learned soon, but I’d thought I’d open it up for discussion first. How about you? Any ideas or thoughts to share?

In related news, here’s an interesting piece of research that was done by NASA - touchscreen usability research in space. Groovy.

  • I recently did a series on gaming and the user interfaces that I’m believing will be in tomorrow’s applications:

    And even cooler was the sneak peek that someone is whispering about here:
