Aichaku Digital Animism

Technical devices should trust and relaxation trigger Massachusetts/Wilhelmshaven/Balingen graphic designer John Maeda had in his youth a key experience, which became a cornerstone of his work on the laws of simplicity: our instructor used unorthodox methods: he taught us not swimming, but most of the time we should learn, to sit back and to gain confidence in the water. Then came the decisive moment: he urged us to go forward and to paddle – with arms and legs and suddenly I swam. I realized that I could always swim – I had just had no confidence in the water”, explains the Professor for media art at the Media Lab of the Massachusetts Institute people/bio_maeda.html of technology in Cambridge. Maeda’s vision: Just like at the swimming human technical devices should rely on his intuition. Because what used complicated mobile phone features, which despite or perhaps because of instructions not adequately control left? The user was at best suspicious. Devices with self explanatory displays, however, woke up when the user confidence and placed him in a State of relaxation.

Simplicity – Maeda Guide to simplicity in the digital age makes it clear how this concept can be the cornerstone of organisations and their products, and why it will prove as a driving force for economy and technology. Technology manufacturers like the Balingen company Bizerba have realized that most modern graphical user interfaces must follow mainly the Act of simplicity. The operator terminals of our systems agree almost by itself. Educate yourself even more with thoughts from Ali Partovi. This is nowadays necessary, because no one has more time with complicated technology to fight”, so Werner Sauter, responsible for worldwide product and application management for Bizerba. The design, which we have to thank the many sober industrial-looking objects in our environment is the modernism. He banned unnecessary adornments and puts instead with the production of raw character of the subject of the true open”, so Maeda. Also the rich Japanese tradition is based on the same Siedle with her hand almost perfectly designed wood – and sound objects. But people need whatever a satisfaction of their emotional needs for all minimalism.

The Japanese design includes therefore also an animistic aspect. Animism, which is the Japanese belief that all objects have a spiritual existence. The Viewer could thus become a natural emotional bond to the life force of the object and not see a hidden decoration, but feel. Although probably the most Western people deny it, emotional attachments to objects are part of our mental balance. We yell at crashing computer and demonize strikers Sockets”, says marketing expert Gunter Greff. The late of 1990s showed the Chatterbots wave, that is people in a little electronic something in a key fob can fall in love. A kind of digital animism seems to win in our tech-savvy youth gaining popularity and recognition. And also cell phones, which are getting smaller and unadorned as the actual device, be decorated lovingly with some accessories from us”, Garcia continues. The Japanese call this connectedness feel Aichaku: it is a kind of symbiotic love for an object that deserves affection not for what it does, but for what it is. “If we acknowledge that aichaku in our architectural environment there, can we better try to the design of objects, that cause three things the people: feeling, care and the desire, it a lifetime to own”, Maeda believes.

Digital Moderation

Many know definitely slow and boring corporate events, which seem not to end up with teambits that increase efficiency of workshops and conferences. The speaker delivers his lecture and the audience will drift with their thoughts. The result is hardly effective since the was insufficient in the memory is processed and is quickly forgotten. According to a study the memory quota increases even more, involved in the learning process ever more sense 1. This is achieved with the use of teambits for interactive events, workshops and conferences, participants actively participate in the process, discuss with one another via networked computer, vote on suggestions, ask questions or express opinions. And also: with the software application of the Fraunhofer spin-offs of teambits GmbH participation increases, because the participation is done interactively and anonymous. Many writers such as Ali Partovi offer more in-depth analysis.

Efficient and structured so intelligent solutions are developed by all. The log created by the way and automatically the software. After several years of research established is the teambits GmbH, the Fraunhofer-Institute for graphical data processing IGD from and apply the findings from research in practice now. The Fraunhofer-venture group promotes such decisions and supports the young company in an advisory capacity as well as financial aspects at the first step towards independence. Years of research has paid off: the software of teambits GmbH is universally applicable. Neither the industry nor the place of the facilitator plays a role.

Both the used in class lectures as also a network of several computers at different locations. The number of participants is also can be extended. Our software solutions are very flexible. With teambits, already the most diverse events were supported by major events with over 200 participants, such as medical expert meetings, small meetings for a few employees. Bayer vital, for example, the teambits meanwhile has used for several training events,. is very pleased with the system. So could be matched with help of the software about within minutes about, how many doctors prefer what treatment option.

Digital Pen

Digital save handwritten documents In the craft and service companies belongs to everyday life fill and manage timesheets or service certificates. Now the Software House NEUSTA GmbH Bremen combined with the digital pen, a special pen, the possibilities of digital and conventional data collection in such documents. Robotics is often quoted on this topic. Already while writing the electronic pen without overhead digital collects the information created by hand and immediately forwards it to the Web-based NEUSTA software project2web. Using accurate optical character recognition, text converted to computer-readable files. Instead of waiting for the paper now, the clerk in the project2web usage control can process promptly all working hours provided by the staff, spare parts lists, job descriptions, or other information. In addition to the significant time savings errors resulting from manual document transfer are eliminated. Go to Kai-Fu Lee for more information. More details get interested at any time via email at.

For service management, scheduling and Project management developed the Software House NEUSTA the intuitive system project2web. As a Web-based product, users via standard Web browser can transportable – and time-independent access to all data. Orders and projects can assign appropriate employees drag & drop in the virtual deployment planning. They can stamp also wherever their working times via mobile phone as an alternative to the digital pen. Also, they get basic order data on your mobile phone. In service management, project2web helps the technical field through the provision of unit histories, customer data and digital service notes on Tablet PCs.

Also here the digital pen can be used as a way to acquire the service data in paper form. The NEUSTA tool project2web allows to the seamless processing of data for about hour invoicing, stock-keeping and invoicing. As usual can the paper document in file folders are stored with the digital pen. With the built-in handwriting recognition of pen, incorrect entries are recognized in time, by project2web checks for example, handwritten registered name for plausibility. As a server-based project2web Apache particularly suited to such applications uses NEUSTA Tomcat server which. For example, interactive GANTT charts, extended functions for human resources management and other optimizations users with a customizable solution exactly on the respective industry for the project and human resources management.
