There are far too many companies these days who understand the value of UX to waste your time being a martyr for one who will only frustrate you. Your best chance of doing a good job is to avoid a bad position. Smartly, during a recent Q&A about the book, an audience member asked how we can avoid taking these jobs in the first place. What kinds of questions, he wondered, can you ask during an interview to spot red flags before the company stabs the whole flagpole into your sacred UX heart?

How AI Is Helping Solve Climate Change

How AI Is Helping Solve Climate Change How AI Is Helping Solve Climate Change Nicholas Farmen 2019-09-19T13:00:59+02:002019-09-20T11:05:46+00:00 Have you heard of the French artist Marcel Duchamp? One of his most famous works is the “fountain” which was created from an ordinary bathroom urinal. In simply renaming this common object, Duchamp successfully birthed a completely new style of art. The same can be done with AI. Why do humans only have to use this powerful invention to solve business-related issues? Why can’t we think a little more like Duchamp and use this ‘all-powerful’ technology to solve one of the scariest problems that mankind has ever faced? The Global Threat Of Climate Change If you’ve read any recent reports and predictions about the future of our climate, you’ve probably realized that mankind is running out of time to find a solution for the global threat of climate change. In fact, a recent Read the full article…

Nintendo Switch Lite review

Let me preface this by saying: I realize that I’m not necessarily the target user for the original Nintendo Switch. First: I don’t own a TV, and haven’t since high school. Second: I travel all the time for this damn job. The combination of these things have made the device’s convertible form factor a bit of a nuisance. It’s big and heavy and the Joy-Cons semi-frequently slip off during game play. And while I’ve occasionally considered playing it in convertible mode, with the kickstand up, controllers detached as the console sits on, say, an airplane tray table, the capability ultimately isn’t worth the trade-offs. It seems odd that “built-in controllers” is listed as a feature on a gaming console, but, then, I suppose it kind of is. That’s all a lot of words to say that I was excited when the rumors around the Switch Lite first dropped. That enthusiasm Read the full article…

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is like a brand-new Zelda adventure on Switch

If you didn’t already know that Link’s Awakening first came out on the Game Boy way back in 1993, you’d be forgiven for thinking the latest Legend of Zelda game is brand-new. Virtually everything about the new version, which launches this week on the Nintendo Switch, feels modern — whether that’s the lushly detailed visuals and diorama-like presentation that make it feel like you’re in a living, miniature world; or its tightly connected map that forces you to think carefully about every tool in your arsenal in order to proceed. The new Link’s Awakening is an almost perfect example of a remake: it retains everything that made the original so memorable, while making it work for a modern audience. And if you really didn’t know about Link’s… Read the full article…

Animated music videos: 28 awesome examples

Welcome to our pick of the best animated music videos of all time. The idea of a music video is to generate promotion; to give extra air time to an artist in front of a chosen demographic, with the aim of increasing awareness and sales. Along with band logos, music videos can provide musicians with a compelling visual element. The MTV Generation saw the creation of numerous animated videos, but as technology became more accessible and the platforms available for showing media grew, the possibilities for animation in music videos increased.  The list below has been compiled to show a broad range of animated music video styles. Not all of them are strictly ‘animation’ (in the cartoon sense) – there’s also a bit of 3D art, lo-fi, hand-drawn, pixel art and so on. And they’re in no particular order… Understand Disney’s 12 principles of animation 01. Rainbow Kitten Surprise – Read the full article…

Mutazione and the Joy of Quiet Games

I had quite a few gaming options this past weekend. I could shoot my way through the cel-shaded landscapes of Pandora in Borderlands 3. I could dip in and see if Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s beta might bring me back to the franchise. I could start up a new, incredibly in-depth RPG experience with Greedfall. Instead, I decided to play Mutazione. Mutazione, from Danish developer Die Gute Fabrik and now out on PC, Mac, PS4, and Apple Arcade, is a much smaller-scale experience than any I mentioned above, focused on a 15-year-old girl named Kai venturing to an island inhabited by people mutated from a meteor that fell decades ago. There’s Tung, who looks like the Hulk but is as calm (usually) as Bruce Banner, and Yoke, the archivist with a penchant for piano playing who happens to look like a human-sized rat in a wheelchair.
