Inspiration: iPhone

Apple iPhone

The iPhone is first mobile phone device that incorporates multi-touch gestures into the mass-market product.

The iphone was our first introduction to multi-touch technology as it is for many.

We found iPhone particularly interesting in relation to our project because of a Google Earth application, which brings tourist related software to the multi-touch device. Dragging a fingertip across the screen slides the view of the world appropriately and two-finger pinch gestures zoom in and zoom out satellite images.

We learned that this way of interaction with maps is much more entertaining than using the same application on a computer with mouse as a mediating device.

It is a great example of how tourists’ related product benefits from using multi-touch gestures.
