Skeuomorphs

Noisy Typer software app
Fake woodgrain, Instagram filters, file folders on your computer, these things are called skeuomorphs. Things with ornamental elements to make them seem old and familiar. Why do we like them so much? I was just gonna post about this new app called Noisy Typer (which essentially turns your laptop into a typewriter), but then I thought it might be more interesting to have a mini discussion about skeuomorphism.

Do you guys think these skeuomorphs will always exist? In another 100 years will our cell phones still mimic the sound of a camera shutter when we take a photo?

Love to hear your thoughts below!
