Creating a body-mind-hand connection between ourselves and our technological tools.
Direct connection and synthesis.
Zen horse archery — the connection between a man and animals/tools.
Mazda Miata as perfect synthesis between driver and car.
Ricoh GR as perfect synthesis between photographer and camera.
iPhone as perfect synthesis between user and tool.
Human-first design thinking
This is why human interface, interaction is so essential. Any tools, technology, fashion should ALWAYS prioritize the human being — NOT the algorithm, technology, or tool.
For example, let’s design social media to benefit humans, not advertisers or teaching/training the algorithm.
Embolden and empower others
Whenever we create tools or technology, let us ask ourselves:
Will this embolden and empower the end user?
And how do we test this? Let us design first for ourselves — create tools that improve and empower us!
