Experience Design for Large-scale Multiuser, Multi-touch Interfaces


Jason Brush, Schematic

Session Type: Presentation

In the summer of 2009, design firm Schematic unveiled a massive 12′ x 5′ interactive touch-screen at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival. The Schematic Touchwall is a RFID-enabled, network-connected multi-touch display, which gave attendees of the festival instant access to the complete festival program, 3D maps of the event and surrounding area, and enabled users to schedule meetings with each other and trade contact information via email. Jason Brush, Schematic’s EVP of User Experience Design, will discuss the Touchwall’s design and development, and the challenges of designing for public, multiuser experiences.
