iPad Makes Me Smarter?

Could the modern interfaces that are available on iPads, iPhones and Android better suit the way our minds were meant to work?

Brian X. Chen is author of a book about the always-connected mobile future titled Always On. Research findings...

“The interface of [the] iPad could work well for us. We use our hands instead of a keyboard or mouse, and it fits exactly how we behave and think in real life. In addition, the iPad interface looks easier for us, because it has larger-size text and bigger icons. It is less likely to cause cognitive overload to the user, based on my studies.”
Though scientists haven’t had a chance to study the implications of the cleaner and more modern interfaces that we see on iPads, iPhones and Android smart devices, we can draw some conclusions from previous studies on computer interface and brain activity.
