What Can You Do With Paper.js? There are many JavaScript frameworks that leverage HTML5. Paper.js is one of these frameworks that uses Document Object Model (DOM) to structure objects in an easy-to-understand manner. It offers creative and neat ways of doing lots of stuff on a Web browser that supports the <canvas> tag. It also offers a new and interesting approach to drawing vector graphics. The basic setup is shown below: As you can see, the paper.js is included after which you add your code file under “type=”text/….”

Windows Desktop UI Concept Posted by Sputnik8 on February 24, 2012 10:24 pm This is a desktop concept that I’ve recently put together for fun. I thought I’d post a few screens to see what people here think. The screens include variations of explorer, ie (with a quick redesign of and bing), media center/player, and skype.

Requirements Envisioning: An Agile Best Practice 1. When Should You Do Initial Agile Requirements Modeling? Agile Model Driven Development (AMDD), see Figure 1, explicitly includes an initial requirements envisioning effort during Iteration 0 of an agile project (what some processes might call the Warm-UP, Inception phase, or Initiation phase). Initial requirements envisioning is particularly important for scaling agile software development techniques to larger, more complex, or globally distributed development (GDD) efforts. The goal is to understand the requirements at a high-level, it isn't to create a detailed requirements specification early in the lifecycle, a traditional practice referred to as "Big Requirements Up Front" (BRUF) which proves to be very risky in practice (traditional theory is that BRUF is a best practice, but experience shows otherwise). Figure 1.

Dragan's Blog  Aka canvas / SVG paradox. This year it will be full 10 years that I officially work for various companies, and i could add 3-4 years of freelancing / solo experimenting to that. Most of that time i spent drawing various data in browser. playLAND / LIKEarchitects Architects: LIKEarchitects Location: 4940 Paredes de Coura, Portugal Architect In Charge: Diogo Aguiar, João Jesus, Teresa Otto and João Salgueiro, Daniel Mudrak Year: 2014 Photographs: Dinis Sottomayor photography Main Materials: Beach floats Client: O Mundo ao Contrário | Paredes de Coura City Hall From the architect. playLAND is a set of three bouncy and colorful spatial interventions geared for children in the public space of Paredes de Coura, that built a human scale Lego using beach buoys as module.

Google Maps: Designing the Modern Atlas It is often the case in interaction design that the best solutions simply get out of the way, allowing the user to achieve their goal and get on with their life. With Google Maps, this is certainly the desired outcome. Geographic navigation and search should be smooth, efficient, and ultimately straightforward. When this is successful and the product works as it should, the nuances and details behind these experiences can often go unnoticed, written off as algorithmically derived and invisible. Since its launch in 2004, Google Maps has come a long way from its relatively simple beginnings as a simple pannable and zoomable road map of the United States and United Kingdom.

Research has shown that 61% of customers read online reviews before making a purchase decision and 63% of customers are more likely to make a purchase from a site that has user reviews. Annoyingly though, customers generally can’t be bothered to leave their feedback. As such you need to find ways of encouraging your customers to leave their feedback without coming across as desperate. It’s a topic we’ve previously touched on in posts looking at how to organise ecommerce product reviews and how to optimise reviews for higher conversion rates. And here are 10 tips to help you drive up the number of reviews on your site...

HTML5 Game: Air Raid Defender – Gary Smith Welcome to my second attempt at an HTML5 game: Air Raid Defender! This game was coded in HTML5 Canvas and JavaScript with the Paper.js library. I’ve only used a few of the library’s many features (and pretty much ignored its focus on vector-based graphics in favour of bitmaps) but I found the library vastly simplified basic tasks such as placing image objects on the screen, rotating them, and refreshing and redrawing the canvas with every frame. In this respect it feels like progress over my more rudimentary first HTML5 game. The gameplay itself is straightforward: use the mouse to aim the anti-aircraft gun, and click to shoot. It takes three hits to bring down a plane.
