I am currently exploring new engagement strategies on video consoles. Since there hasn’t been anything similar done yet, there is also no category out there: Not on SONY’s PS3, nor on Microsofts XBOX. So, for now, let’s just call it branded “console” service apps.
My job is to play with the hardware platform and input technology, and come up with new user-interface and application concepts for it (despite engagement strategies and feature sets). I design and prototype apps to demo these ideas mostly using Mindmeister, AXURE and Photoshop.
Next year, the mayor of New York will announce the winner of the “Taxi of Tomorrow" competition. The winning vehicle will be the exclusive New York City taxicab for a minimum of 10 years, city officials said. Right now there are approximately 13,237 cabs on the streets of greater New York (ca. 50 Billion worldwide). Time to equip the passenger cockpit with a new and fascinating digital experience. Time to say the odd TaxiTV goodbye. Here are some sketches, respectively concept drafts:

In recent years, there has been a fundamental shift in the way people use and access the Web, and while user behavior on websites hasn’t changed a lot, the ways users interact with, consume, and consult the Web in general have changed: New user patterns, desires, and perceptions have emerged along with more efficient web services, social networks, and the ability to access and request data streams in a location-based and time-sensitive manner – on the go.

As a creative designer I was looking for additional (marketing) opportunities to offer interactive experiences to peoples mountain routine. Ideas to connect them with the brand (in this case the ski resorts) in a new inspiring way. Its about: Life – Fun – Play.
Well, you know me: I just love skiing and I love my iPhone. The question that came up yesterday while I was riding on Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain again: Can the iPhone change the way we ski? Simple question and some might say stupid too. But, think about it twice and take a look at some of those great ideas I outlined and scetched for you.

If you’re wondering why my posts to Flip Digital Blog (aka Curious Digitalus) have been a little infrequent of late here’s the reason why. I’m writing/illustrating an ebook/trendreport tentatively titled, “The ‘ME Tourism’ – Redefing Travelling” It will be available June 2010. I’m in the last throes of writing it with barely two or three chapters left go now. As I get closer to the launch of the ebook, I’ll publish more about it. For now you can check out some randomly taken screenshots, sketches and a draft of the content page. Feel free to leave a comment with your name and a contact/link. I will notify you once its ready. Enjoy (… feedback and some inspiring words are welcome).
