In a re­cent speech in Austin, Kay Hofmeester and Daniel Wig­dor, both user ex­pe­ri­ence ex­perts and mem­bers of the Mi­crosoft Sur­face team, com­mented that in­put is a lan­guage—one which must be cre­ated by the de­signer, learned by the user and taught with a new type of user in­ter­face. So whether it is based on touch, ges­ture or speech, a user in­ter­face must also in­clude the nec­es­sary fea­tures to teach the user how to use it prop­erly. This learn­ing should hope­fully be smooth and nat­u­ral. A good tech­nol­ogy with a sharp learn­ing curve will be more of a hor­ror than a plea­sure!
