12 Future Predictions (14 Jan 2000)
So what this tells me is that the degree of difficulty for interaction design is going to rise by at least an order of magnitude and probably several. Firstly, there is the number of devices - or modes of interaction. This is going to grow from the current 2 - GUI and Web Browser to perhaps 20 including Palmtop, phone, in-car navigation system, in-house control system and so on. How many modes of interaction are going to be involved may be less. We may see several devices using the same modes. An in-car navigation system may end up sounding or looking just like an in-house system. Who knows?
