As mentioned last week, banking apps seem to be the first big fad on Surface. Here's Accenture's version.
While I like the concept, I'm not sure why it is being developed for Surface instead of a lower end capacitive product.
- It doesn't seem to leverage Surface's two differentiating factors:
Tagged Artifacts and the ability to measure blob orientation.
- UI development could run a lot faster in Flash
- The physical dimensions of Surface seem inappropriate for this scenario. I'm not sure where the banker's legs are. From what I can tell they should be inside the Surface table.
It would be nice for customers to take away a printed copy of the converstations
1. Is a signature on Surface legally binding?
2. Usability testing I have seen suggests that, on Surface, 3D objects should be in one point perspective, with the POV at the center of the table. This way, all viewers can read the object. Do people find the 3D charts in this video difficult to read?
More notes later.
