Why the Cat is so Mountainous?

By haa@canoncat.org

I have been attracted to user interfaces for a with out a doubt lengthy time. Assorted forms of user interaction must be extra actively experimented with, except we decide to dwell on desktop-window-icon-click on reformatory forever.

The Canon Cat initially built by the enormous minds (e.g. Jef Raskin et al) at Recordsdata Equipment, Inc is one enormous example of doing assorted things.

It’s with out a doubt astonishing that the Cat (which bought about 20.000 in the end of 6 months in 1987) turned a staunch product. More in most cases than no longer, fresh assorted recommendations die sooner than they get the possibility to be examined in staunch lifestyles.

Jef Raskin, who was as soon as within the back of the Canon Cat, also created Apple’s Macintosh computer, at a time when 80 column displays were the high-cease of computing. Agree with it.

I read about the Canon Cat in several user interface articles and books (in conjunction with Jef Raskin’s The Humane Interface). The descriptions with out a doubt intrigued me so I bought a ‘Cat from Ebay. It with out a doubt works in a assorted procedure. The hardware feels rather 1980’s, but the ideology is level-headed from the lengthy speed.

Now that we’re keen in direction of a brand fresh extra or much less computing platform, PDAs and diverse petite-sized cell gadgets, we have a giant gamble of doing things differently. Let’s recede and invent it!
