Screens Smartphone Interactions, thinking to

New Media Design is changing our life, the Smartphone and its screen is the first important tool regarding this change.

My smartphone controls and moves the mouse pointer on my computer. My phone is also a wireless remote that controls the computer’s video content. Also the TV is controlled through my Smartphone.

Two screens, one on the desk, the other in the palm of my hand. With a smartphone I can open the photos in my computer and I can always send from my smartphone in real-time images from the camera to the TV Screen.

This distance communication represents a new paradigm increasingly evident that grows around us and becomes visible. The Smartphone is a remote control for bigger, fixed, screens. It is disappearing the possibility that a screen is able to set himself content without interacting with other screens.

My hand shakes the phone and move the mouse pointer over my computer remotely with a magic gesture that accomplishes the real goal of technological research: to perform magic. The world around me is remotely-controlled from a distance and magic events are performed everywhere. Am I am the one who operate the remote event that now I see in front of me.

The computer screen appears to have a purely physical frame, because it really does not have borders and boundaries; Contents come to screens from a portion of the rest of the world. The absence of clear boundaries seems to be a characteristic of our times. The smartphone is a communication tool that absorbs our content and propagates them in the world. This propagation occurs through other screens, other smartphones, TV screens, computer screens and projectors.

The pictures we take with the smartphone are coming from our life and in few seconds are around the world. Smartphone Pictures have a great success thanks to this speed. Pictures are faster than text messages. You take one shot and in 1 second you show to the world (through screens). Whats faster than a smartphone picture? find the solution, program your app or tool, and you will have success!
