User Experience vs User Interface: The Basics

Posted by Dan O'Leary on 3/3/16 2:46 PM

Whether you’ve heard the terms UX (User Experience) or UI (User Interface) or not, I can assure you that you’re all too familiar with both. UI, or User Interface, is what you see when you look at a piece of technology. It can be the way the layout and colors appear on an iPhone, or how the channel guide looks on your cable TV box. It’s the interface that you use to interact with any and every bit of tech that pops up in daily life. Love the way your bank’s website looks? UI. You have a preference for the way Candy Crush uses specific shapes and colors over similar match 3 games... Yep. UI.

The industry has been focusing hard on user interface in the past few years so this show was a good litmus test. As I walked the floor and saw what other companies had to offer, it really made it obvious why the mainstream technology industry thinks fitness equipment has some of the worst user interfaces in the world.

Get Scared, Then Go ALL IN

Posted by Scott Sechrest on 3/31/15 3:10 AM

“Do one thing everyday that scares you.”

~ Eleanor Roosevelt

In 1951, Solomon Asch devised a classic social psychology experiment that investigated whether social pressure from a majority could affect a person to conform. Amazingly, 32% of the participants conformed to the clearly incorrect majority. How could that be? Asch concluded that people conform for two main reasons:
