I really enjoyed this excerpt from a new book about user experience design.
It chronicles Paul Fitts, one of the pioneers of Ergonomics and Human Factors, (and ultimately created Fitts’s law which is critical for graphic user interfaces).
The article explores the work Fitts did during World War II, making instrumental panels and flight controls more usable.
It’s a great 12 minute read:
I’m considering buying the book once I get caught up on my other reading.
What do you all think of the article? Would anyone be interested in writing a book review for it?
