Design Strategy at Google
The Best Interface is No Interface
Screens have taken over our lives. Most people spend over eight hours a day staring at a screen, and some “technological innovators” are hoping to grab even more of your eyeball time. You have screens in your pocket, in your car, on your appliances, and maybe even on your face. Average smartphone users check their phones over 200 times a day, responding to the addictive buzz of things like Facebook or emails or Twitter.
There's a different path. In this lecture, innovator Golden Krishna challenges our world of nagging, screen-based bondage, and shows how we can build a technologically advanced world without digital interfaces.
