Magic UX

London design consultancy firm Special Projects have created a unique new mobile app task switching interface they call Magic UX. The project aims to bring the UX of a smartphone more into the physical world by allowing the user to map an app to a spacial location and switch between multiple apps by just moving the phone to the set location, similar to picking up different items on a desk. The app even lets you transfer data between apps for example by "picking up" an image and moving the phone to the email app to attach it.

Adobe Max

The Adobe MAX 2018 event demonstrated a plethora of AI enabled "multimedia" tools from Adobe this year. The innovations include the Moving Stills project which automatically generates an animated fly-through from a static image, ProjectKazoo which allows the user to hum a tune and generate sampled instrumental music from it and Fontphoria which automatically generates a custom font from one letter of a newly designed font. Check out these and the rest of the projects on the Adobe Blog.

Sans Forgetica

The Behavioural Business Lab at RMIT University Melbourne Australia worked with RMIT lecturer and typographer Stephen Banham to create a new font called Sans Forgetica. The font is designed to invoke enough cognitive processing in the brain to prevent the scanning of the text and to prompt the brain to engage in deeper processing, thus enhancing memory retention. The aim of the font is to help students remember their study notes. Sans Forgetica is available as a free download and a Chrome extension.
