DevArt - Winner Announced #DevArt  

Mapping a dream as it navigates through your brain using G+APIs. Exploring metamorphosis through storytelling in the form of a poetic adventure with Chrome Apps and Compute API. Travelling through a playful giant map that explores fantasy and reality on a huge scale using Map API. Creating music through the touch of your finger on a simple piece of wood using Android. These are just a sample of the hundreds of projects we received after inviting the developer community to express themselves creatively (http://goo.gl/cL8P9m) as part of DevArt (http://goo.gl/58HnuS). 

And the winner is … a duo Cyril Diagne & Béatrice Lartigue from France. Cyril and Beatrice’s project, Les métamorphoses de Mr. Kalia, is an interactive poetic adventure exploring the theme of metamorphosis in the human body, inviting the audience to personify Mr. Kalia as he goes through many surrealistic changes [video http://goo.gl/Q9IvCo] [project page on DevArt site http://goo.gl/wpq7YM]. The piece conveys feelings related to change, evolution and adaptation. Mr. Kalia is brought to life through the use of a skeleton tracking technology, and uses Chrome Apps and Google Compute Engine.

Applies to web experiences too
 
Keepin' it real
There's a lot of discussion and energy spent nowadays on ensuring that people have amazing experiences across a variety of devices (w/ various form factors & platforms), aka a multitude of "screens". While this great, it's important to note that this is on the high-end or inspiration-end of the spectrum (of experiences that users have w/ mobile technology today). 

On the low end (or keepin-it-real end), you have to ensure that even if you have a simple app that runs on a smartphone in a market where the user doesn't have much money to spend on a smartphone or a data plan, that you are taking this user's needs into account.

2 of their most important needs being:
1) preserve my battery life,
2) don't wreck my data plan, aka, give me offline mode

It's amazing how these 2 basic things keep getting lost in prioritization across so many mobile technologies, and this comes back to ruin the experience for so many users worldwide, on a daily, and probably hourly basis! 

We should reach for the stars, sure. But WE MUST BE GROUNDED as well! Go far in either direction, and as the Buddha once said, your user is going to have a bad time :). 

In Season 2 of my UXD show on the Google Android Developers Channel (http://bit.ly/uxdplaylist), I have a 3 part series called "It's all about location" that will delve into this subject in much greater detail! Stay tuned! :)
