8 Examples of User Interface (UI) in Daily Life

User Interface in Singapore provides an easier and simpler way to interact with technology. Interface releases the potential of complex systems and technologies so that they can be used easily by anyone without having to have special skills.

In everyday life, we certainly cannot be separated from technology. Starting from small ones like smartphones, or big ones like ATMs. Without a good User Interface, of course, we have difficulty using these two things.

Today, we present examples of innovative user interfaces that we believe you often encounter in your daily life.

  1. Mouse

The mouse we mean is not a mouse, but a mouse on a computer device that you often use to move the cursor. Before the birth of the mouse, computer users had to use the keyboard to run a programme or perform certain activities on the computer.

But that all changed when Douglas Engelbart of SRI International put together a wooden shell, a circuit board, some metal wheels, and some wires to make a mouse interacting with a computer all you had to do was move the mouse and click it.

  1. Voice-Based Search Interface

In each electronic device, the majority must have Google Assistants such as SIRI, Cortana, or Google Voice Search which can easily give you the results you want on search engines based on voice.

Over time, this type of user interface has developed rapidly. Where they can speed up complex processes, provide relevant search results and recognise the various languages ​​that humans use.

  1. Click Wheel on iPod

Decades after the birth of the Rotary Dial, Steve Jobs announced the arrival of another type of dial that would change the share of the entire market. The iPod not only holds thousands of songs on the device but also provides a new way for users to interact with the device.

The Click Wheel combines razor-sharp functionality with tactile simplicity and a way that appeals to portable music listeners. In today’s era, there may be many generations who are not familiar with this magical device. But in the past, almost all young people wanted to have this thing.

  1. ATM

The interface on the ATM makes it easy for users to withdraw and deposit their cash. The user only needs to enter the ATM card, enter the PIN, and later will appear the options that the user can choose at will.

Nowadays, there are widespread types of touchscreen-based ATMs where it is easier for users to make cash transactions. This is of course a new and sophisticated breakthrough in the world of User Interface in the Banking sector.

  1. Electronic Tolling Collection (E-Toll)

Motor vehicle owners must be very familiar with this one object. Electronic Tolling Collection or better known as E-Toll is a user interface design that makes it easy for vehicles to enter toll gates quickly and efficiently.

Users only need to buy the card, fill in the balance, and paste the card on the E-Toll machine when entering the toll gate.

E-Tolling is a sophisticated innovation in the field of transportation that serves to reduce congestion that may occur at Toll gates. The speed and efficiency of the machine can speed up the process of entering and exiting toll gates with minimum errors.

  1. Navigation Satellite & GPS

No map is perfect. But the map that we use today almost depicts the actual state of the earth.

GPS devices are usually installed on the dashboard of a car or a smartphone. In the past, GPS was only allowed to be used by the military, but now almost everyone can use this magical device.

You also must have understood, with GPS we can easily see a smooth path, find a certain location, or find the location of the nearest restaurant.

  1. Gesture Recognition

Currently, the use of Gesture Recognition or human interaction with a computer-based movement that is most widely and widely known is in playing games (Virtual Reality). But not only that, Gesture recognition is likely to be applied to PC and laptop OS in the future.

Even Surgeons use it to access patient data in the middle of surgery. NASA also uses Gesture Recognition to move robots in exploring outer space. When a computer reads the motion, the world is its interface.

  1. Virtual Reality (VR)

Virtual reality is a technology that allows users or users to interact with the environment in a virtual world that is simulated by a computer so that users feel they are in that environment.

Virtual reality works by manipulating the human brain so that it seems as if feeling virtual things feels like real things.

You could say, virtual reality is a process of erasing the real world around humans, then making the user feel that they are being led into a virtual world that is completely out of touch with the real world.

So, those were some examples of user interfaces in Singapore that we can find in everyday life. It is the best time for you to look for other user interface design examples that are available on the market these days.
