SPM Shell 3D for Android.

I used a previous version of the 3D home screen last year on my Samsung Galaxy S. This is one of the best User Experiences i’ve ever had with a mobile device. The 3D effects provide a great visual feedback during interaction. My only major complaint was how it sucked up battery life and took a good 2 minutes to load up the home screen from a hard reset or cold boot.

Last year I designed this U.I. for a software application that would allow you to connect an Android Samsung Tablet to an external display.

Once connected it had three modes of operation:

Mirror Mode would allow the user to create a second, copy, of his tablet screen on an external display. This was created with presentations in mind.

The second mode or “Desktop” Mode launches a fully functioning Linux Desktop. The Tablet can then be used as a Keyboard and Touch pad to navigate, send emails, and browse the web like you would on any desktop computer running Linux. Imagine brining your laptop or desktop computer with you in your pocket, on the go, ready to be plugged into any external monitor.

The third mode allowed a user to relay their Desktop or Laptop computer display wirelessly too the tablet to be displayed on a TV remotely. This too was designed with presentations in mind but where cables would be impractical.

Running on Android Honeycomb O.S. I chose to abandon the “traditional” look and feel of the U.I. and go with something a little more futuristic. This provided a better synergy with Honeycombs already “nextgen” identity.

Shortly after its release members of the Pure Breeze team appeared in a campy infomercial web video that ended up going semi-Viral. I’m the guy in the middle. :P
