Welcome back to the UX Daily; though soon – we might not need to publish the UX Daily at all if the Ted Talks piece we look at today is a vision of the future; we may be able to beam cool stuff directly into your brains rather than publishing it:
The Science of Telepathy
This is an incredible break through and one that Miguel Nicolelis shares in interesting detail over at Ted Talks:
“You may remember neuroscientist Miguel Nicolelis — he built the brain-controlled exoskeleton that allowed a paralyzed man to kick the first ball of the 2014 World Cup. What’s he working on now? Building ways for two minds (rats and monkeys, for now) to send messages brain to brain. Watch to the end for an experiment that, as he says, will go to "the limit of your imagination."
Moving From Coding to Entrepeneur
Ouida Mac shares their story over at 1st Web Designer – the journey from being a coder to becoming an entrepreneur. It makes for interesting reading:
“You have a lot of projects going for you and more are waiting in queue. You even have a business. The frustrating thing, however, is that it is not moving into the direction you want and growing into the scale you desire.
It’s not that you lack the talent or the technology. In fact, you’ve continuously allow yourself to learn new systems and technologies but why is everything on a standstill?
This was the same frustration Ouida Mac faced not a long time ago. Like all average web designers, she was charging $15 – $20/hour for her services. Ouida doesn’t lack talent nor knowledge.
Describing herself as your typical nerd/geek, Ouida has written her own CMS and she is constantly learning new technologies to make her craft better. Even her resources and support are abundant.”
Awesome Motion Graphics Designs
How Design is taking a look at 7 great motion graphics designs:
“Motion graphics take design to the next level. Animation and motion graphics have found a powerful place in website and interactive design. Their entertaining value attracts more users to sites and prompts more engagement, which is why illustrated animations are becoming more useful for advertising and marketing efforts.
As Patrick McNeil mentioned in a recent Print Magazine article, The Future of Illustrations on the Web, “designers and developers are finding beautiful ways to animate interfaces.The animation not only looks great, but it’s also easy to understand and connects the image to the text that is revealed.”
