More @#$%&! Yeah!

The visual design of Contextus is more or less complete. Here are a few key screens and states that a user would see while navigating through it. As a test, I refined my previous experiment by placing these screens into Keynote and animated a couple of screens and interactions. More smoke and mirrors…

Now all I have to do is create specific screens for an individual’s taskflow, or rather four individuals, animate in keynote and film my actors ‘using’ Contextus in various locations. And remember to replace the lorem ipsum dummy text with something more real.

They can find answers in one of three ways: selecting the day’s featured question, browsing topics or by entering a direct search. The globe zooms to their destination and provides background info. They have the choice to find related maps or info, imagine “what-if…?” or answer the question. Thematic map overlays provide more information and start to build a story around the topic. What-if takes existing data and imagines would could have happened or what will happen by visualizing how one variable can affect other variables, showing correlations and connections. To complete the feedback loop, people can answer their own question publicly or browse through other’s answers to the same question, perhaps reply and engage in healthy discourse.
