Over the next several Surface posts, we will be talking about the 3 most important experience design concepts on Microsoft Surface.
1. Visual and auditory responses should make up for the lack of tactile feedback.
2. All visible content should communicate how to interact with Surface.
3. Keep the content and the interaction as tightly coupled as possible.
Applications that incorporate these concepts are easier to learn and use...No more looking for the right button.
That's the power of Point and Do.
