You’re probably kept awake at night wondering about the future of interaction design and user experience, tossing and turning as you ponder the interactive interfaces we’ll be engaging with in the world of tomorrow.

Hi Richard. We loved your post on our Facebook page. (https://www.facebook.com/Bodyform/posts/10151186887359324). We are always grateful for input from our users, but your comment was particularly poignant. If Facebook had a “love” button, we’d have clicked it. But it doesn’t. So we’ve made you a video instead.
