Human-Computer Interaction: Ergonomics and User Interfaces - Vol. 1

By Hans-Jörg Bullinger; Jürgen Ziegler | Go to book overview

It has been shown how the use of the trashcan in MacOS is a problematic solution. In terms of these principles, we can say that it is a failure to satisfy both Integration and Topology. For example, one ejects the floppy disk to keep it rather than discard it, or the dragging operation of one icon to another results in the first icon to be contained in the second, but not so in this. If we have applied the topology principle, we would have designed an icon to represent the floppy disk driver and, when dragging a floppy disk to that icon, it would transform itself to represent the ejection of the floppy disk. All these are only minimal considerations about blends and have to be further developed in an extended paper to take into account many aspects that could not be presented in this paper.

Conclusion

The application of conceptual-integration patterns as a network of input spaces and a blend space would allow follow the avatars of different concepts that will combine in new design constructs. The proposed schema follows the model applied to explain how meaning develops from a given sentence or paragraph applied by cognitive semantics scholars. The new types of patterns proposed will be able to connect partial structure from different input spaces and to give the design basis for all blends obtained from the original spaces. These gradual transformations also reflect the transition from informal to formal description of design elements through intermediate -semiformal- stages.
