Owning a device that requires constant fondling (there’s a joke in there somewhere) means dealing with smudges, and while those greasy fingerprints can annoy the cleanly among us, they also make for interesting art. Well, maybe not art in the traditional sense, but what art is really traditional anyway?
George Kokkinidis from Design Language scrubbed down his iPad screen and opened an app. He fiddled with the app for a bit, then flipped off the gadget and snapped a photo of the fingerprints left behind. He repeated the process with seven more apps, including Mail, Fieldrunners, and Angry Birds. Kokkinidis experiment yielded interesting insight about the variety of user interfaces implemented by developers.
