Sony's Evolution UI makes learning Android fun

Sony has announced Evolution UI, an intentionally hobbled Android launcher that forces you to perform perfunctory tasks before you can properly use the device.

For instance, when you first launch the system, you'll only be able to access the dialer, SMS app, browser and camera. If you wanted to open the app drawer, however, you'd have to earn it as an achievement by starting and closing five apps in quick succession.

The idea is to turn discovering your phone's features into a series of console-style achievements and unlocks.

At the moment, Evolution UI is just a research project that's been kicking around Sony's headquarters. That said, the company has released the launcher to GitHub for others in the open source community to play around with. In practice, it feels as if the system could frustrate anyone but the most green technology users.

There are no comments for this at the moment.
