Don’t Click Anywhere: dontclick.it

Screen capture of dontclick.itWhile we’re on the topic of not clicking, figured I’d make a post about this thought provoking little site… http://dontclick.it. It’s an entire site navigable via a wide range of novel, non-clickable interface elements.

The site’s pacing is superb, with perfect delay times and progressive disclosure helping guide you through intriguing self-referential content about the site and the history of clicking.

Live user-generated content and site usage data are seamlessly blended with static content throughout.

And don’t miss the inspirational “explore” section with its various experimental interface solutions for submitting buttons and exploring content. There’s even a training camp where you can learn to be a better mouse user.

So, did you miss the click?

Surface UI

Microsoft’s recently announced its new Surface UI:

http://www.microsoft.com/surface/

Initially targeted at businesses rather than consumers – priced at about $10,000.

Some people might not be able to resist having it in their homes.

I would be curious to see how well the UI works for a large number of pictures since the videos only demo small use cases.

Wouldn’t really agree that it That similar to Minority Report. What do you think?
