Convergence of HCI towards Mobile devices
Most of us have heard about HCI, for the readers who are new to HCI the question comes to them, Whatis HCI?
-computer interaction is a discipline concerned with the design, evaluation and implementationof interactive computing systems for human use and with the study of major phenomena surroundingthem."HCI focuses to improve the interaction between users & the computers to make computers morereceptive towards user needs. The computers are shrinking themselves into mobile devices now daysdue to the growth of embedded operating systems. There are many other factors which is making thisconvergence at a fast pace. Now the question is should we fear this convergence, as we cannot matchthe internet richness on the Mobile devices. I suggest we should welcome the transition with a warmheart & user UX skills to design usable, user friendly devices that makes the target audiences happier.
