Design Development – Slot Machines 2
- Information architecture and user workflow influenced our ergonomic innovation too. For example, let’s place buttons where hands are likely to be! This sounds obvious now that user experience is a driving force in the design world, but back then it wasn’t.
- We also grouped financial and transactional elements together in an intuitive way so players wouldn’t spend time wondering how to start or stop their play.
- There was a need to innovate ergonomics for casinos too. Casinos service and clean machines frequently so quick and easy access is critical. Would you believe that casino employees used to crawl on their hands and knees under the machine to retrieve money and refill printer rolls? We totally rethought that process and added mini doors and clever door movements that offer lightning fast access to the internals”.
