What an awesome idea!

These calipers are not mass-produced.
They’re lovingly hand-crafted by me… in my garage hammering the little brass rivets into place with a proper hammer, just like the proper Ancient Greeks used to do.
The odd bit of roughness is a stamp of authenticity. Of personality. I wouldn’t want to mass-produce them even if I could.

Article: A couple of interesting User Experience reads

I’ve been reading through a couple of interesting user experience articles this weekend.

Winning a user experience debate (UX Booth)

This provides some good advice about handling critique when it comes to usability and user experience. It also provides some suggestions for formulating responses. I quite like their idea of the “validation stack”: user evidence; user research; design theory - in that order.

Can experience be designed? (Information Architects)

This is a great article! Just the right balance between scepticism and sincerity. There are some people who make me cringe when they latch on to the “user experience” buzz words. This article cuts through a lot of the hype with what is obviously a real understanding of the challenges involved in designing and building interfaces with an emphasis on usability.

I’ve been playing around some more with my HTML5 Canvas Kaleidoscope experiment. I’ve made it more robust and played around with the flickr API to get more out of it (you can view other flickr users photos in it now). The main improvement is that the you can link to a particular photo being viewed through the kaleidoscope.
