Check out the Design USA exhibit at the Cooper Hewitt design museum here in NYC. It has great examples of pioneering design as well as a neat handheld ipod touch exhibit tour. The ipod touch interface reminded me that I don’t like to look down at a screen in my hand for to long when I’m front of a large exhibit. It also felt totally out of synch with the more historical parts of the exhibit that come first. Later on the ipod was helpful when it added extra images and audio explanations to selected pieces.
