A Magazine is an iPad that does not work

Amazing video evidencing how Operating Systems and User Experiences can affect our behavior very early in the process. And a tribute to Steve Jobs.

From the author of this video

« Technology codes our minds, changes our OS. Apple products have done this extensively. The video shows how magazines are now useless and impossible to understand, for digital natives. It shows real life clip of a 1-year old, growing among touch screens and print. And how the latter becomes irrelevant. Medium is message. Humble tribute to Steve Jobs, by the most important person : a baby.«

Lot’s of today’s innovations in technology have been envisioned in Sci-Fi stories and designed first for Sci-Fi movies. Think exoskeletons, talking computers, artifical intelligence, … Even today’s user interfaces on gadgets such as tablets get some of their inspirations from movies.

In UI techdom, we see « Minority Report » as one of the few defining UI innovation movies, with several breakthroughs such as translucent glass screens and of course Tom Cruise’s « maestro like » gesture interactions with the system.
