The success of any consumer electronic device depends to a large extent on the appeal of the user interface (UI) and how easy the device is to use. Studies show that good cosmetic design can encourage users to explore the full range of features and often engenders the perception that a product is easier to use. So if the benefits of a great looking, easy-to-use UI are so clear, why are so many products still falling short of customer expectations? The solution lies in taking a fresh new approach a consumer electronic device UI plays. By identifying common UI functionality and implementing it in a reusable and customizable way, we can make it far easier for embedded engineers to deliver visually engaging and easy-to-use consumer electronic products.
No question the UI in electronic devices today is playing a larger role in the success of a device. Get the UI wrong and your product will have little chance of surviving. And it isn’t enough to deliver a UI that is merely functional: it has to look good too. Studies have shown that a good cosmetic design can encourage users to explore the full range of features and often, can engender the perception that a product is easier to use, which can make consumers more tolerant of product deficiencies.
