Multi-Touch Table Concept

Project Summary

Inspired by today's touch-based devices, such as the iPad, I designed this interface focusing on a simple and intuitive user experience. Mainly operated through the use of a single start/back menu button and familiar drag/drop motions, the design aims to eliminate the need for instructions.

The user begins by touching one of the four start buttons, after which the interface appears (bottom). From this point on, the central button (now red) allows the user to take one step back, avoiding the need for extraneous buttons.

By touching and dragging, the user is able to cycle through the apps within the menu (1), as well as expand the area to accomodate for more space (2).
