Description

As technology expands and evolves, one-dimensional, graphical user interface (GUI) design becomes increasingly limiting and simplistic. Designers must meet the challenge of developing new and creative interfaces that adapt to meet human needs and technological trends. HCI Beyond the GUI provides designers with this know how by exploring new ways to reach users that involve all of the human senses. Dr. Kortum gathers contributions from leading human factors designers to present a single reference for professionals, researchers, and students.

Review quote

A good case can be made that the question for HCI is "What's next?" This book provides a doorway and a path to practitioners and researchers envisioning the next generation of interfaces. - Arnie Lund, User Experience Director | COE, Microsoft

Technology is rapidly evolving and convergence is upon us. Demands for new products and services will push the limits of stand-alone GUIs. Already, the global marketplace is filled with non-GUI applications. HCI Beyond the GUI is an excellent and timely resource that primes researchers and designers on interfaces to more than the common GUI. What makes this book so useful is that each interface is presented with the human factors research behind the interface, design guidelines, testing techniques and future trends. It is a must read for both experienced and new practitioners to prepare for the design challenges ahead. - Gavin Lew, Managing Director, User Centric, Inc.

The book is thorough and it is well organized. Thus while the person interested in an overview of the entire discipline could do no better than start here, the person interested in a particular class of interfaces will have no problem cherry-picking those chapters of interest. As with all good, elegant, creative, expository books, there's a tendency to think "Why hasn't this been written before"? Randolph G. Bias, Associate Professor, School of Information, The University of Texas at Austin, author of Cost Justifying Usability

"HCI Beyond the GUI is a good introduction to alternative HCI options, providing ample history, data, and direction for development. If you're looking for information on user interfaces other than the traditional GUI, this book is a great place to start."-- Technical Communications
