multimedia is not dead, it's just asleep

Some people believe that User Experience is something that can be designed, and dating back to the theme park ride sensorama where one sat on a motorcycle seat that vibrated and bumped along while displaying a movie of the motorcycle experience and even wafting some gasoline fumes the amusement seeker's way...there have been arenas where the imagineering was truly a designed User Experinnce art

fast forward from the days of the new york world's fair and coney island fortune telling machines to lucas/disney's star tours and universal's back to the future rides and we begin to see the true potential of a designed user experience. it's definately not about sitting on the couch watching a super bowl ad with a can of duff's in hand; & it's probably not about sending a global wire transfer via c2it.com either

it might be about feeling the vibe of an interactive branding presentation, especially if it's presented in letterbox format with some deafening sound effects

see what i mean at studiocom's groovy interactive agency website

the content is prety rightous, but why can't they keep the browser window to a proper size matching their letterbox media windows?

I'm not entirely sure the user experience itself can be designed into crt images and text entry fields [and i'm not convinced that any website is more engaging than eating a bag of munchies or party mix].
