Kyle Buza (M.S. MIT Media Lab), one of the creators of E15, presented the application, a desktop application that uses Web APIs to present site content in a degree of ‘spatial relevance.’ E15 separates the content from its intended 2-D form and presents it in 3-D dimensions according to the developer’s vision. The end result is a more browseable content.
You’ll be broken up into groups of five and asked to choose a popular Web site. Work together to create an idea for an E15 interface for that Web site. As you have seen today, E15 offers three dimensions plus interactivity. Inherent in E15 is chance operation. What data from the Web site do you want to use for each of the three dimensions? What would you do with it? How do you expect a visitor to interact with it? How should the experience react or evolve as it’s being used?
