The Future is Now: Building Sci-Fi-Inspired User Interfaces
Chances are at some point in your life, you've seen some fun sci-fi movie where there's this glorious futuristic user interface. They're full of beautiful colors and graphs and glowy stuff, and they're just generally cooler than what we have now. Someday (someday!) we may see them become real, but when? Well, as the saying goes, we have to be the change we want to see in the world. In this talk, I'll be showing off some fun sci-fi UI components (and building some!) to make that dream a little closer to reality!
