Make your Users Boogy: Designing gestures like the choreography

Due to recent changes in mobile technologies we are not just able to walk with our devices, but we are now dancing with them in new ways. These dance steps in turn are reflecting their moves back onto all the digital devices in our lives. Interaction Designers today need to do more than present and listen when designing interfaces, we need to choreograph.

This short form presentation will look at the changes we need to be making as practitioners and a new way to evaluate our design principles against understanding motion as a new type of aesthetic in our design language. We will look at existing examples as well as examples from the future.
