be it desktop app, game, CD, website, web app, mobile app, etc.

there are some heavy hitters on this list and i'm sure everyone is curious
what some people here have done.

any takers?

I worked on getting Moody's Credit Mark application from Alpha to GA
release. Credit Mark was one of 4 rating engines, (Finch, Standard and Poors
and Dow Jones have their own SW), used by (virtually every) bank to rate
mortgages, bundle them up into tranches and sell them in the secondary
markets.

Wait a minute, did you ask what was the most notorious product you ever
worked on?

(PS. the software works great, the gaming of it is another thing.)

I love what I am designing right now -but since it won't see the light of
day for a while....

kayak.com is probably the highest profile, I really designed the UI for
myself - but others seem to like it, even if it has issues

gather.com because I never thought I would design a social networking app
that would turn my mom into a hard-core blogger

One of my fun project was to create Flash frontend for Wordpress.
Sometime back, there were discussions going around Flash community
that if it is such cool tool, why are there no blogs designed in
flash.

At that point, I decided to give it a try and came up with this
design. Backend is still wordpress:

note: The posts have not been updated recently as I never got time to
take it further :P (you will see its not perfect)

the thing is I enjoyed doing it :)

Back when I was working for a research faculty member at CMU, I
created a prototype application in Macromedia Director for viewing
aircraft maintenance manuals. I know, that sounds boring. Here's the
cool part:

The software ran on a wearable computer with a head-worn display. The
input device was a wheel. It worked something like an iPod wheel,
except it was a big, physical knob you wore on your chest and gripped
with your hand. Of course, this was long before the iPod made that
type of input commonplace. We took it out and tested it with Air
Force techs.

It was a lot of fun because, for one, the UI was a challenge—there
was nothing else like it (that I know of). Secondly, the combination
of unique software and unique hardware forming something very useful
and useable was pretty nifty.

I designed a Pong game for the visually impaired while at NYU-ITP. It was a challenge to create a purely physical and sound based interface. It's in it's third version... development is moving along slowly as it's a "Garage" project at this point.

The fun parts were designing a hand-wheel interface that could withstand the abuse of being in a public space, and creating a sound instrument out of a solenoid, dixie cup, and manila folder that does not have any fastners. (It's sort of like laser cut oragami).

<rant>But wait! That's not interface design!... well I would argue that it is, and I'm anxious to help move the interaction design field to a place where it gives up the keyboard and mouse and incorporates more industrial design.

Screens will be cheaper than whiteboards in another 3-5 years. (according to Bill Buxton) and we are going to have to really think beyond our sheet-of-paper sized glowing glass rectangles. </rant>

I worked on the WordPress.com homepage with the Automattic team, while doing
a design workshop for them back in July. Conversion rates went up 12% on the
first day of the new design, and 25% in the following weeks.

The site gets several million new visitors every month. It's nice to have
that much of an impact on a company, and on a medium of communication.

Not sure you can count scripture as "cool" but I remain rather fond of the

Coolest: transparent IM over interactive TV.

Effective: we redesigned bankrate.com a few years ago with some pretty
impressive returns—20% improvement in usability, 23% increase in page
views, 23% increase in unique visitors, and 23% increase in time on
site, netting a 15% increase in annual revenues or a little over $3M a
year. They were really happy.

Wow, you've all mentioned some really impressive stuff!

back in 2000, i designed the interface or 'shell' for an ad-sponsored
game/content aggregation system that pre-dated Macromedia's ill-fated
Central Product. it was called ZapSpot (sadly, also a pioneer in spyware
because we logged everything you did while you were playing games).

we released 17 casual games written using a proprietary API - i did most of
the game artwork for them too using the 6x6x6 web safe palette. we had
3.3million downloads, over 500,000 people played our games and quite a
number
were rated 90% or better by Cnet.

but the coolest thing thing i designed was the ad creation system for my
company's internet radio advertising platform. it's all wizard-driven and it
was mocked up and the functional spec was completed in 2 weeks.

Strangely enough, it was a marketing website for Kraft Dinner (known
as Kraft Mac 'n' Cheese in the US). It was a concept site about
everything cheesy, with a significant portion of the content driven by
users ... in 1999!

It was also my first exposure to the project politics of a very, very
large company, whose total marketing budget was probably larger than
the GDP of a small third world nation.

Hi

I designed a software for Printed Circuit Board Design that was what
you will call disruptive innovation. It tried to change the landscape
by giving a totally new way of designing PCBs and in the process cut
total PCB design cycles from 6 months to 6 weeks or less. In some
parts of the design process the improvement is 25-100x.
Such was the productivity improvement that some of our customers
picked our beta code itself to do their production designs which is
unheard of in the space we operate in. Of course its a pretty complex
piece of software and it was not a one man design but a lot of minds
working together over a period of 4.5 years :-).

Some very interesting posts. Good idea. Here is my personal favorite
product I designed:

HyperTIES

In 1983 (long before the web) my friend Ben Shneiderman showed me a
concept he had developed -- a highlighted link that you could click
on and jump to a new page in an article. Of course he had reinvented
hypertext but we did not it at the time.

Ben created a DOS software program called TIES (The Interactive
Encyclopedia System). When I saw TIES, I was excited and obtained a
license from the University of Maryland to continue its commercial
development.

Working with a team that included Whitney Quesenbery and James Terry,
we created an authoring program and browser and named it HyperTIES.

This pre-web browser had a markup language called HTML (HyperTIES
markup language), run time formatting of articles, a history stack,
blue underlined hyperlinks, image maps, and a scripting language (a
version of BASIC). We came up with a lot of concepts that are part
of today's web. But of course we did not have a web so the pages
that we linked to were stored on a single PC. We conceived of it as a
publishing tool for encyclopedias.

Our original version was written in DOS and we later created a
Windows version.

A number of companies adopted HyperTIES including AT&T Bell Labs,
Union Carbide, and Hewlett Packard (which used it to document its
LaserJet 4 printer).

The ACM published a widely-circulated interactive package called
Hypertext on Hypertext, designed to acquaint people with this new
technology.

In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee referred to this disk his proposal to create
the World Wide

http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/History/1989/proposal.html.

Berners-Lee stated,

". . .several programs have been made exploring these ideas, both
commercially and academically. Most of them use "hot spots" in
documents, like icons, or highlighted phrases, as sensitive areas.
Touching a hot spot with a mouse brings up the relevant information,
or expands the test on the screen to include it. Imagine, then, then
references in this document, all being associated with the network
address of the thing to which they referred, so that while reading
this document you could skip to them with a click of the mouse."

So perhaps in a small way, our work helped inspire the world wide
web.

If you Google HyperTIES you will find about 4,700 references to it.

Once the web came out and Netscape launched its browser, I retired
HyperTIES.

Charlie

Several cool projects.

A hub for Advertiser, Content Provider, Content Consumer hooked up to
massive printers, that allowed targetted advertising and content in an
offline format. like customized TV Guides, with rich media contextual
ads. back in 1999

The predecessor to Adobe Breeze. in 2000

A real time visualization tool for a neural networks, 10K nodes 100K
links changing at 24fps..the biggest fun was thinking about how to
adapt SQL to networks with real time structure and attributes changing
on the fly and make sense of the massive sensory overload.

A graph based interface to the Lucene search engine for searching
blogs. Adapted many of the autosuggest features that are only recently
hitting the web. http://www.intrio.com/products/graphion/index.htm

Wii Remote powered Puppetry in Flash. This may hit the web at some point.

I recently had the opportunity to design the user interface and
interaction for blist (www.blist.com). It's been one of the most
challenging (and rewarding) designs I've ever done!

blist is a consumer database that blends the ease of use of
spreadsheets with the power of a database management system.

Would love to hear feedback from folks if anyone gave it a shot.

Thanks.

I designed an implemented an application installer that used voice
prompts so it would be accessible by people with sight problems. The
installer was intended for some sort of accessibility tool, and there
was no reason why the installation process shouldn't be accessible
too, reducing the dependency on someone else to install the software.

Probably the HyperCard UI, because HyperCard empowered
non-programmers to create their own software, and a lot of people
created a lot of cool stuff with it.

Tiny screen accessibility tool
I have worked on an innovative mobile accessibility tool called
"color blind check" . This tool diagnoses whether the user has got
color blindness deficiency and changes the mobile graphics themes
accordingly. I tested it with few folks in India , really good
feedback from all the corners. We found this would really help color
blind users to access mobile without much difficulty.

You Tube for Helio mobile app.

Fun project. I designed it, spec'ed it, even pitched it to YouTube. Rather
than trying to mimic their online experience, I scaled it back and built an
experience more suited for browsing on a mobile device. seems to be getting
decent press as well.
