Birmingham Hippodrome

This is some early UI research work for a 48″┬átouch screen table to be installed at the Birmingham Hippodrome.

To help get the real feel of this monster touch table, I mocked it up full size.
Here are two smashing videos documenting my initial thoughts.

Key thoughts

  • Surface lots of content by flattening and exposing it – show topics and themes in the same way as other artifacts
  • The display area is smaller than the artifact canvas area – there are hidden delights
  • Instant and simple engagement
  • Playful
  • Fluid
  • Tap, drag, pinch, rotate
  • 7×13 grid

Interaction styles

  • Each item in the grid holds a stack of artifacts or themes – periodically rotate content if not tapped
  • Single tap – open item
  • Drag item – fluid move to new position
  • Swipe item – next card in stack
  • Two finger rezise – resize/rotate
