Microsoft’s 3D Jedi Phone Explored Ambitious but doomed UX experiment, I see A never-released Microsoft phone has surfaced, providing a glimpse of how Redmond’s designers proposed to evolve touch-based user interfaces. The “McLaren” phone, which was cancelled just months before its scheduled launch in 2014, responded to 3D “Jedi”-like gestures, which subsequently surfaced in the “Mix View” patent earlier this year. Pressure and gestures are two avenues that designers have explored to expand the touch UI – which hasn’t changed in almost a decade. Swipe here, swipe there: that’s pretty much it since the launch of the iPhone in 2007.
