Whether viewing the Standard (“Plan”) or Satellite view of Google Maps, the widget for changing the view shows the map and a preview of the other view behind it. ) This is also a difficult way for agencies—with their notoriously fast project schedules— to work. It’s honestly a challenging way for any designer to work, as often the attention of clients and stakeholders is focused on the big features, not the small details that would enhance those features or improve the overall experience.

In‐ serting a stack of punchcards or flipping a series of switches produced output that was equally obtuse. For a time, the GUI cleared up and simplified microinteractions. But then Moore’s Law (processor speed doubles every 18 months), Koomey’s Law (power consumption for hardware decreases 50% every 18 months), Kryder’s Law (exponential increase in storage space), and increasing bandwidth and network connectivity (LANs first, then wireless networks, both local and mobile) created the need for more micro‐ interactions, and those microinteractions needed to control actions far more abstract than turning on a light.

The history of microinteractions stretches back to the first electric devices. Most of the digital standards we’re used to now were once novel microinteractions. A microinteraction is made up of four parts: triggers that initiate it, rules that determine how it functions, feedback that the rules generate, and the loops and modes that make up its meta-rules. There are three ways of working with microinteractions: look for them and focus on each individually, reduce a complicated feature to a core microinteraction, or treat every feature as a set of linked microinteractions.
