The new zumida user interface revealed!

Some time ago I started working on a new version of zumida, a software for knowledge management, communication, and presentation. Today, I want to share two screenshots with you providing a peek on the new zumida user interface.

A complete MaCon project in 4:30 minutes

The MaCon approach covers a wide range of engineering tasks for manufacturing systems, from requirements analysis, to system design, to component and system test. Understanding all aspects and their relationships is difficult, which is why I decided to produce another YouTube video showing a complete MaCon project in fast motion. Note that the video is based on a previous version of the MaCon tool, thus the graphical user interface looks slightly different than before.

MaCon YouTube Video

In the last days, I prepared a YouTube video demonstrating MaCon: A tool for consistent cross-discipline conception of manufacturing systems. The video explains the MaCon user interface and shows advanced features such as scenario-based testing and test report generation. The tool represents an integral part of my dissertation work at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen.

Introducing Timeline Navigation and Facebook Like

To improve the usability of my blog I worked on two new features: (1) The timeline navigation and (2) the Facebook like button. When reading an article, the timeline navigation allows exploring the remaining blog articles in chronological order. Instead, the Facebook like button provides information about how interesting a given article is for the community.

3D Multi-Touch Master Thesis

Due to the overwhelming response from the research community over the past 2 years I decided to put online my Master Thesis written at Fraunhofer FIT. I hope my experience will help at least a few researchers and enthusiasts to move forward with their approaches and technologies. Overall, this is my contribution to improving human-computer interaction towards a more ergonomic, inuitive and fun experience.

Official 3D Multi-Touch Websites

Recently, two websites went online about the 3D multi-touch prototype that I developed during my Master thesis at Fraunhofer FIT. They serve as the public hub for getting information about the technology, the project, and the people behind it. This step is intended to foster collaboration and intensify exchange with the community.

3D Multi-Touch with Computer Vision

Some time ago I was working on free hand 3D gesture interfaces similar to Microsoft Kinect. What this work essentially means is collecting digital camera images and constructing logic that is able to recognize hands and interpret their movement. For constructing the logic it helps to build comprehensive visualizations of the camera data and information that you calculate from it. In this article I show some visualizations that I used during my work.

Fraunhofer Prize Award 2011

After finishing graduate classes at RWTH Aachen University I decided to go to Fraunhofer FIT, a non-profit R&D organization at the interface between science and industry, to work on my Master thesis in the area of computer vision, human computer interaction, and gesture recognition. This year my thesis was awarded the Hugo Geiger Prize at the Fraunhofer Prize Award 2011 in Nuernberg, Germany.

Blog Cover Interface

In the previous post I demonstrated Animated Article Tiles, a new type of interface for blogs. One problem people had using the interface was that the images/titles did not convey enough information to decide what is interesting and what is not. Therefore I decided to take the idea one step further and provide fullscreen tiles with more textual contents indead.

Animated Article Tiles

In my previous posts Blog Calender Interface and Blog Timeline Widget I demonstrated how to use the time information to build navigation controls for blogs. In this article again I deal with blog navigation, however this time I exploit the images contained in the blog articles for building a tiled navigation interface.

Blog Calendar Interface

In my last post Blog Timeline Widget I demonstrated how to provide a timeline for navigating your blog posts. In this article I show a modified version of the idea where the timeline is transformed to a full-screen calendar. This way the previously used dots for articles can be replaced by thumbnails of the article contents carrying more meaningful information.

Blog Timeline Widget

The main purpose of a blog is to provide access to articles (HTML documents) organized by date. To reflect this idea I designed a timeline that visualizes the temporal activity on a blog and that can be used as a navigation at the same time. This post contains screenshots and a YouTube video.

From Layout to Animation

In a previous article The Evolution of a Functional Prototype I demonstrated how to transform sketches into prototypes backed by database content and application logic. In this post I explore the options for animation of the user interface to provide smooth transitions between the displayed contents. This interface paradigm is for example used by Apple's products to deliver great user experiences.

The Evolution of a Functional Prototype

In a previous article From Sketch to Prototype I illustrated the change from fuzzy whiteboard sketches to more structured and formal HTML prototypes. In this article I take the process one step further to arrive at a real functional prototype of the system backed by (exemplary) database content and Model-View-Controller (MVC) style application logic.

Comparing Interface Design Options

Developing graphical user interfaces requires us to develop visual representations of information and controls. My previous article, From Sketch to Prototype, explained the evolution of one single idea from fuzzy drawings to prototypical implementations. This article illustrates the parallel evolution of multiple ideas followed by a natural selection process.

I have been long thinking how to reorganize my website to migrate from a pure blogging system to a more complete personal portfolio while keeping an original but intuitive interface design and content structure. This article shows a first draft of what the new page could look like and further explains the underlying development process with pictures and screenshots.

Research Group Seminar Winter 2011

Beginning of this week the research group I currently work at was going onto a two day seminar trip onto the country side south of Munich. Since we are a very large group the event was intended to present current progress in the individual domains and foster communication and exchange between the people. All in all it was a very interesting experience.

3D Multi-Touch Product Vision

As you might know I was developing a prototype for 3D multi-touch interaction during my Master thesis at Fraunhofer FIT. Lately I had the chance to talk with a friend, Osca, about ways to build useful products around this brand new technology. What we came up with is a pencil sketch of the user interacting with a digital drawing table.

HyperKit - A lightweight CMS written in PHP.

Recently, I helped a friend of mine who is starting his own business with his website. I searched for a lightweight content management system which provides enough power to support his use case. After having tried several options, I decided to implement my own software. The result: A lightweight CMS written in PHP which suites well for small to medium size businesses.
