Study Sci-Fi Interfaces

One of 8 reasons to study Sci-Fi Interfaces:

If designers always work from what they know can be done with the materials they’re familiar with, I’d assert that they will only come up with incremental improvements over what’s come before. Those aren’t bad (in fact very important for usability’s sake) but we also have to keep in mind the big opportunities of disrupting an industry for the better. To inspire those, you need a way to dream big, to imagine what the thing would be like if it was just… awesome. Free of constraints. World-changing. Sci-fi is a fun and familiar framework in which to do that for technology.
