Golden Krishna of Cooper argues that it’s time for us to move beyond screen-based thinking.

“Because when we think in screens, we design based upon a model that is inherently unnatural, inhumane, and has diminishing returns. It requires a great deal of talent, money and time to make these systems somewhat usable, and after all that effort, the software can sadly, only truly improve with a major overhaul.

There is a better path: No UI. A design methodology that aims to produce a radically simple technological future without digital interfaces.

He proposes three simple principles to design smarter, more useful systems that make our lives better.
Principle 1: Eliminate interfaces to embrace natural processes.
Principle 2: Leverage computers instead of catering to them.
Principle 3: Create a system that adapts for people.
