Can objects and machines express feelings?  We’ve seen bouncing lamps and curious robots as main characters in Pixar films – not to mention depressive robots in “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”.
But what about interfaces?

Can we use motion design to create a happy or serious interface? How do you animate their digital body language to express their personality or form?

Motion design is a powerful tool for creating memorable interactive experiences that the user identifies with.


This talk is about emotional interfaces and why they create affection. If your app was a person – what kind of person would it be?
