Let’s say we worked at Apple, and were challenged with designing
an experience that was impossible in 2007. Something that would be
entirely impossible with web technology. What would our futuristic
UI look like?
It would have compositing effects that need serious GPU
horsepower. Blur is a beautiful but computationally intensive
operation, so we’d use it liberally. To push it further, the
blurred areas will need to update during scrolling and update
at 60 fps.
