feng-gui

Has anyone taken a serious look at this tool? http://www.feng-gui.com/

It uses artificial intelligence to create heat maps that are supposed to
replicate what one would see with eye tracking.

Some of the developers in my shop have gotten a hold of it. I have yet to
see a heat map that makes sense. The first ones they did attributed the
greatest area of interest to white space.

PDA UI design plug-in??

Does anyone know of any products or plug-ins (for PhotoShop say) that enable you to design for and view designs as they would appear on a PDA?

IxD Metrics

Hi all,
Forgive me if this has been talked about on the list and I missed
it. But... I've had several discussions with folks recently about the
evaluation of "good" interaction design. One side of the debate seems
to side with efficiency metrics: completion times, error rates,
reduced interruptions, etc.

emotive interaction design

http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/11.12/love.html?tw=wn_tophead_4

MIT Media Lab is trying yet again to push the boundaries of human-computer
interaction and this time studying the emotive relationships between man and
machine ... What do people think about this direction of trying to create
emotional relationships thus anthropomorphizing the machine to an "equal" to
the user. Is this an inevitability? or is it truly sci-fi? Are there places
today where this already exists?

Design patterns for before/after?

I need to prepare a (Web) presentation to show changes done as part of a redesign. The format will be Image A (before) vs Image B (after). Because of the detail involved it is not feasible to shrink the images down to a size where they can conveniently be shown side-by-side.

I have thought of two other patterns that might be used, and wondered what people thought of them or might have other suggestions.

  1. I can present the images stacked, one above the other. This gives at least some visibility to both at the same time, but requires scrolling.
