A Brief Rant on the Future of Interaction Design

A critique of “futuristic” touchscreen interfaces by Bret Victor. “The next time you make a sandwich, pay attention to your hands. Seriously! Notice the myriad little tricks your fingers have for manipulating the ingredients and the utensils and all the other objects involved in this enterprise. Then compare your experience to sliding around Pictures Under Glass. Are we really going to accept an Interface Of The Future that is less expressive than a sandwich?” (Via Matt Thompson)
