User Almighty

Posted in Experience Design by jmaura on December 23, 2007

User Almighty used a Globe as an open interface for rich media content delivery. As the user turns a blank globe, a projector overhead displays both geographical and historical information. The user navigates the content with each turn of the globe, which also represents as a timeline that increments by a decade with each turn. This intention in this project was to test the usability of a blank object with its embedded metaphor as a navigational interface. The globe’s affordances coincided greatly with the content and its delivery and users seemed at ease as they engaged with it. Our team used content the world spins around them and time increments by decade. In each decade the user is encountered with an animated visualization of a specific event in history.
