ETech day 4: Mind hacks for designers

  • Light comes from above
  • You have no visual buffer; if you can't see things side by side, you can't easily compare them
  • Subitizing and counting
  • Priming
Principles for interaction designers:-
  1. Know what's easy and what's hard to sense. 3D shapes are easy to sense, sudden changes are easy to sense.
  2. Follow the physics of attention – attention blindness lasts about 0.5s after an attenion event.
  3. Nothing is irrelevant
  4. Possibilities are just as visible as colour
