Bill Buxton, the Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research, has visited us to inquire about one of the tools that we are developing currently for sketching interactions called Sketchify. Sketchify is a toolset for sketching of novel classes of user interfaces, which we use in education of interaction designers.

With Sketchify, we extend the concept of paper and pencil sketching to a more generic concept of rapid manipulation of interaction material. We define Interactive material as any piece of software/hardware that represents or simulates a part of user interactive experiences, such as inputs from sensors, output of audio tools, interaction with Web services, or simple drawings.

Željko is introducing Bill to Sketchify

Through manipulation of interactive materials, designers create “interactive sketches”, which in rough terms illustrate interaction scenario or interaction techniques. Our tool gives a designer freedom to combine elements of traditional freehand sketching and with numerous extensions, such as end-user programming (spreadsheets and scripts), and links to existing software functionality.

You can download and install Sketchify for free here!
