In my first experiments with livecode I play with the rotation sensor within the mobile phone. The idea is to create a app which explores the 3d space around the phone, prompting the user to rotate the phone around that space.
I initially thought of my final app to be more of an art piece. Something you could view or interact with in an installation. Not something to keep you busy on the bus to work.
Inspired by artist like Bradley G Munkowitz (gmunk) and his future UI designs. His work has featured in films, music videos and advertising. One example would be his work on the film Oblivion.
Though his work often has an unnecessary creative flare( bouncing objects, flashing lines, scaling and intensly over cluttered spaces) his use of grids, type and line combine to make easy to read images. The motion and colour or the UI can communicate the severity of a situation even though we dont understand the numbers or controls of the UI.
Sharp red flashes indicate that something requires immediate attention.
Thin blue lines and points construct a supporting frame that holds the information without getting in the way or drawing our eyes from the main focus.
I am yet to work with line weight or type, however here is my first look into the rotation sensor and livecode mobile development.
