"Because clicking is so 90s" challenges user interaction online: It is the first website which can be controlled only with motion and voice.
The evolution of input devices for machines and computers reveals: mouse and keyboard are only a temporary status quo for human machine interaction (HMI). The web application "Because clicking is so 90s" now pushes this development along for an experimental online use. The trend for using native and intuitive navigation systems — which has become more and more important for the offline world (e. g. Multitouch, Project Natal) — is now transferred to the online world.
The goal of this web application is to avoid the use of keyboard and / or mouse — in fact inadequate bridges for true HMI (man communication = machine communication) — to introduce an alternative way for navigation with native human methods such as gestures, motion and voice. Of course, not all previous navigation methods can be adapted one-to-one or even applied at all. For this reason, this work evaluates and suggests a new type for navigation with adapted movement, voice and operating concepts and a further developed user experience.
These advanced options with the so called "audio-visual navigation" are exemplary presented with a portfolio website. Beside contents for presenting and interacting with media assets, there are also special applications like an interactive music instrument (the so-called „Play") or an intuitively rotatable and zoomable 3D object. Thus, this project creates a new awareness for alternative navigation methods, it also provides meaningful, elegant and exploratory applications.
As part of my (Mike Kus) talk at FOWD London 2009 I played this short film. It's sped up footage of me designing my slides for my talk. I showed it because I thought it would interesting to see the design process I went through whilst making them. It also features a lot of footage of slides being designed that never made it to the final slide deck.

The music I used is a track called Með suð í eyrum by Sigur Ros from their album Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust. It's an amazing record and I suggest you all go out and buy it :)
