THOUGHTS

A Web Beyond Touch

Video   •   Slides

The advent of the World Wide Web brought far reaching changes in human computer interaction, and mobility is doing the same. Turning knobs and flicking switches became pressing keys and moving a mouse. This in turn has become touching screens and swiping. And this is only the beginning.

JavaScript development is acclimatizing itself to a new keyboard- and mouse-free, screen-orientated mainstream. But what happens to web development when new categories of devices mean that even the touch-screen cannot be assumed?

Computer user interfaces change. What remains the same, however, is the human body that drives interaction. So this talk will discuss an experiment that explores developing touch-less human computer interaction with JavaScript for content creation on a mobile World Wide Web.
