Since more than 10 years ago, apple pulled human-computer interaction from keyboard to mobile phone screen. Over the years, human-computer interaction has been in the continuous optimization phase of “quantitative change”. The next “revolutionary interaction” that can break through the user’s existing behavior patterns has not appeared; or it has already appeared, but it is still immature so that it is not accepted by the market. I observed the innovative direction of interaction design in recent years and boldly predicted the “interactive revolution” in the next 10 years.
Let’s start with the conclusion: the next “interactive revolution” is at the mobile phone sensor. The contact points of human-machine interaction will not be on the screen, but in three-dimensional space. A more convenient man-machine interaction should be “stereoscopic interaction” instead of two-dimensional screen interaction.
Imagine a scene: now we want to take a picture, you need to open the screen first, then click on the photo APP again; or, the further vendors set up the function to take the volume key to take a quick photo. But after a while, you may just need to pick up the phone and shake it a few times, and your cell phone can quickly enter the photo APP.
Look at an innovative case. Here is a mobile phone introduced by MOTO in the past few years. The mobile phone supports a variety of gesture operations outside the screen, including waving, mute, quick shooting, cutting and opening two flashlights and other quick operation.
On domestic mobile phones, mobile phone manufacturers like VIVO are constantly adding “agent sense” in the system. It includes intelligent brightness screen, spacer unlock and so on.
Therefore, the information input and output mode of users and machines will no longer be limited to the screen, and the sensor in the mobile phone will cover the main channel of “user input the information into the machine” in the future. The way of information output will not be limited to traditional hardware such as screen, loudspeaker, LED lamp, vibrating motor, flash lamp and so on.
Perhaps in the future, people will create more sharp sensors to take charge of information input and output.
