NYC Usability Professionals Association presents:
>>Playfulness in Interaction Design
Some of the best examples of user experience are those that have elements of
playfulness. What is meant by playful? How can user experience designers
introduce the concept of play in their solutions? This talk will look at
examples from Apple, Yahoo!, Digg and more to examine what makes an
interface playful and how that leads to a successful experience for users.
