Life after Skeuomorphism

With the flat visual user interface pioneered by Apple’s IOS 7 now widely accepted by the design community, its competitor has tasked itself with taking it to a new level. At Google’s I/O 2014, their design team showcased a new concept which incorporates the world of material design and that of the flat visual user interfaces we use on a daily basis. By using what they call ‘smart paper’ they’ve brought an almost tactile feel to how we interact with the flat user interfaces on our mobile screens. Check out the video below to see how they’re bridging the gap between the physical and digital world we know.
