Cooper UX Bootcamp: A Firsthand Account
New and Interesting
Sensubrush, a true painting experience for the iPad, combines a unique artist brush stylus with various painting and drawing apps to create beautiful artwork and sketches. The brush stylus makes it easy to paint or freeform sketch with lighter, more detailed strokes. Alternatively, you can close the brush end of the stylus and use the rubber stylus for a thicker stroke. Very useful.
Need some new fonts to freshen your typeface collection? Ten Dollar Fonts is a collection of, you guessed it, fonts that cost only $10 each! What a steal for these beautifully drawn faces. The visual designers at Cooper are loving it.
The Descriptive Camera works like a regular camera, except instead of spitting out a photo, it prints the metadata about the content of the photo. This is a really useful technology that can be eventually combined with current digital cameras, which only record metadata related to the camera's settings, location, date, and time. Imagine being able to search through an enormous library of images by the subject of the photo! This prototype prints out the metadata, but eventually the creator plans for it to be appended to the photograph on the fly, so it can be searchable later.
And the week of April 23 concludes with our very own, Mr. Alan Cooper, giving a talk at The Next Web Conference 2012 in Amsterdam. We can't wait to hear all the details.
Have a happy weekend!
