Discussing "Make it So: Interaction Design Lessons from Science Fiction"

Calling all Trekkies, Star Wars geeks, and sci-fi nerds (and everyone else!): For our February meetup, we'll be discussing the new book Make It So: Interaction Design Lessons from Science Fiction by Nathan Shedroff & Christopher Noessel. This book delves deep into how fictional user interfaces have driven the design and development of "real world" interfaces.

For a peek into the topic, check out the book's website. You also might want to check out Nathan's website or Chris's Twitter account.

Use the code UXBOOKURBANA to receive a 30% discount on the printed copy of the book when ordering from Rosenfeld Media. The code is good until Feb. 28.

You can also get the ebook for only $11 from O'Reilly Media by using our coupon code.

Remember, you can come to the meeting even if you haven't read the book. At this meetup, we'll also be giving away a free copy of our March book, Jakob Nielsen's Mobile Usability. Hope to see you there!

We're reading this book because one of our members suggested it. Have suggestions of your own? Contribute them on this discussion board thread.

    Great, fun conversation. Would love to talk sci-fi beyond the UX practice with most of these folks, too!
