Cloudwash: The connected washing machine

Great work by @bergcloud. I’m really looking forward to the internet of things and how connectivity will change our live and the experience of activities of daily life.

Attention to Detail: Animated placeholder text on eventim.de

Today I spotted an interesting UI idea on eventim.de. In order to highlight the search field on the main page and remind the users to use this function, eventim uses an animated placeholder text in the input field. They are showing 6 different examples of search terms (additionally, the terms seem to represent current popular artists and events).

I’m not quite sure about the effectiveness of this technique but like the approach. It would be really interesting to know some numbers or results of A/B and usability tests. What do you think?

Helpful? Animated placeholder text in search input on eventim.de

Attention to Detail: Google Application Form

I love the fact that Goole wants to know how you want to be called in case this name is different to the legal name.

Lovely detail in Google’s application form.

17 Minutes on a teen’s computer screen

Noah is a short film created by Canadian film students Walter Woodman and Patrick Cederberg which shows how teens use the internet today. And it’s scary how real it feels.

Multiscreen usage in Battlefield 4

Good to see Electronic Arts is pushing the use of multiple screens to improve the gaming experience in Battlefield 4. I don’t know wether all this features will be really useful or just kind of “nice to have” but it’s a way with a lot of potential. It’ll be very interesting to follow this topic in the next months and years.

#5YearsToLive follows #FirstWorldProblems

Last year DDB New York created the #FirstWorldProblems campaign for Water is Life. I wrote about it and pointed out that I liked the idea a lot but don’t agree with the faked execution.

Now there is a follow up campaign called #5YearsToLive. Very emotional and very cute. Great work, DDB NY.

The whole campaign will include the hashtag #5YearstoLife, as well as video clips featuring American kids, who probably won’t die at five years, reciting their own bucket lists.

The Pixel Painter

It’s never too late to start doing things you love.

“Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, worked as a graphic artist back when everything was done by hand. His family introduced him to the computer and Microsoft Paint long after he retired.
Now, Grandpa spends ten hours a day moving pixels around his computer paintings. His work is a blend of pointillism and 8-Bit art.”
