EE Life invites readers to submit their best practical or impractical touch interface ideas in our first ever amazing "Integrating Touch" design challenge.
Touch Interfaces are everywhere from ATMs and computers to… hmm wait a sec, we're drawing a blank here. Let us restart the previous sentence: Touch interfaces SHOULD be everywhere, and we want to see your ideas!
Imagine a future where everything is touch enabled: From your car and wallet, to your vacuum cleaner and robot dog. We at EE Life want you to get your engineering juices flowing and finish the list.
We’re looking for the most unusual and creative imaginary applications for
a touch interface. From highly practical to completely impractical,
tell us what kind of an application you’d integrate a touch interface
into and you could win an Apple iPad with Wi-Fi!
Your effort will not go unnoticed -- we will reward the best of the best
of the submissions with prizes and accolades at the Touch Interfaces
Virtual Conference on December 9th.
Deadline for submissions: December 6, 2010
Here's a few ideas to get you started!
We don’t want to waste your valuable time and we’re not looking for over-engineering--just follow our simple submission guidelines.
Your entry should include:
1. A write-up of 300 words that describes a product or application with touch interface functionality.
2. A simple hand or computer-generated sketch of your idea
3. A block diagram of the control system.
Send all submissions to EELife@ubm.com
Complete rules and guidelines here.
Make sure you register for the Integrating Touch Interfaces Virtual Conference on December 9 to get a sneak peek into the future of touch interfaces and how you can apply them in your designs, of the real-world sort.
