Cancel/OK, OK/Cancel or Yes/No?

I’ve recently been in the discussion of which is better Cancel/OK, OK/Cancel or Yes/No. So I did some digging to see if I could find any sources that have already done some research on it.

Here we are going to focus on a simple concept. Come up with a more efficient in game inventory system. Here is what I imagine the process goes like…

Best and Worst of Sci-fi and Sci-fi Inspired UI

Just geeking out on some more sci-fi UI stuff, and found a bunch of great examples. Thought I would share the cream of the crop with you. Found a bunch that really just copy each other, or are flat out terrible, so I thought I would post those as a reminder to self NOT to ever do that. Enjoy! If you have any more shoot me a link.

Just flat out cool. I don’t even like baseball. I imagine this is what Super Baseball 2020 players would look like if they weren’t 8bit.
