Skeuomorph


I want to introduct something about car pc For Peugeot 307 information solutions (based on N53 structure, OEM/ODM service).
car pc For Peugeot 307 information solutions (based on N53 structure, OEM/ODM service)
Place of Origin: China Hubei Model Number: For Peugeot 307 Brand Name: OEM/ODM 1. Applicable models: N53 Peugeot 307 Car PC which is independently developed and manufactured by Wuhan Bluestar technology, used the 2 Din+ Space industrial design, size 178*110*172mm. For Peugeot series , now our N53 is suitable for the next car models: Peugeot 307 etc 2Din+ car models, and at the same time, we can provide one standard panels to cut out for these car modelss dashboard size to make our car pc perfectly match the original car. According to our investigation, N53 Car Pc is suitdable for more than 60 car models. If you didnt find your car models in the list, you can compare the size of your car dashiboard or contact us for a better solution for you. At the same time we have developed many original car design sized N57 Car PC includi


Skeuomorph or Skeuomorphism is a term used in the history of architecture, design, and archaeology. It refers to a derivative object which retains ornamental design cues to structure that was necessary in the original. Skeuomorphs may be deliberately employed to make the new look comfortably old and familiar, such as copper cladding on zinc pennies or computer printed postage with circular town name and cancellation lines. The word derives from Greek, skeuos for 'vessel' or 'tool' and morphe for 'shape'.

Examples

Historically, high-status items, such as metal tableware, were often recreated for the mass market using pottery which was a cheaper material. In certain cases, efforts were made to recreate the rivets in the metal originals by adding pellets of clay to the pottery version for example. The mortice and tenon joints present in the trilithons of Stonehenge may be examples of skeuomorphs, derived from earlier timber structures.[citation needed]



A decorative rivet covering the functional rivet underneath.

In the modern era, cheaper plastic items often attempt to mimic more expensive wooden and metal products though they are only skeuomorphic if new ornamentation references original functionality, such as molded screw heads in molded plastic items. Blue jeans have authentic-looking brass rivet caps covering the functional steel rivet beneath, and a pocket watch pocket; digital cameras play a recorded audio clip of a conventional camera shutter opening and closing. Such ornamentation is not necessarily non-functional: the watch pocket is now used for coins, and ribbing on a hunting knife handle (skeuomorphic of vines binding wooden handles to a metal or stone blade) adds grip. An example from the field of consumer electronics is the presence of a circle on the face of the Zune - this is not needed, as the buttons exist in a four-way configuration, but is shaped to bring to mind the touch-wheel interface of the iPod.[citation needed]

Many music and audio computer programs employ a plugin architecture, and some of the plugins have a skeuomorphic interface to emulate expensive, fragile or obsolete instruments and audio processors. Functional input controls like knobs, buttons, switches and sliders are all careful duplicates of the ones on the original physical device being emulated. Even elements of the original that serve no function, like handles, screws and ventilation holes are graphically reproduced.



Hubcap with non-functional spokes.

Other examples:

Decorative stone features of Greek temples such as mutules, guttae, and modillions that are derived from true structural/functional features of the early wooden temples,

Injection-molded plastic sandals that replicate woven strips of leather,

Various spoke patterns in Automobile hubcaps and wheels leftover from carriage wheel construction,

Famously, fake woodgrain printing on thousands of modern items of plastic, Formica, or pressboard furniture,

Fake stitching in plastic items that used to be made of leather or vinyl and actually stitched together,

Non-functional spouts on Maple syrup jugs,

Men's neckties expand,

A fiberglass boat with striations made to look like wood planking,

80's Handheld LCD games translated into virtual LCD games. ex. http://www.skeuomorphgames.com

Non-functional air intake grille on the new (electric) Chevy Volt,

Elaborate lacing on children's Velcro-secured shoes,

Bowsprits mounted on the bows of steamships (which, having no sails, require no rigging),

Almost all of the digital depictions of buttons, sliders, dials, and other mechanical controls (which immediately suggest their functions to mechanically experienced users) on the buttonless surface of the iPhone and iPod Touch,

Jiggling needles of the tachometer and speedometer gauges at startup on the digital screen display in modern semi truck cabs,

Fake colonial window pane frames trapped between the large, twin glass panels of modern sealed energy-efficient windows,

Impressive, large-diameter concentric assemblages of black and silver "hardware" encircling the tiny objective lenses on most consumer-grade digital still and video cameras.

Design considerations

The arguments in favor of skeuomorphic design are that it makes it easier for those familiar with the original device to use the digital emulation, and that it is graphically appealing.

The arguments against skeuomorphic design are that skeuomorphic interface elements take up more screen space than standard interface elements; that this breaks operating system interface design standards; that skeuomorphic interface elements rarely incorporate numeric input or feedback for accurately setting a value; and that many users may have no experience with the original device being emulated.

Skeuomorphs are differentiated from path...(and so on)
