Welcome to Nice UX Design: a celebration of the small details we find in products that elevate them and make them greater than the sum of their parts.

Each issue features some examples of nice details from the digital and physical worlds, along with the occasional not-so-nice detail where things could have been improved.

CAPTCHAs on the PlayStation store

We're all familiar with popups asking us to click on all the traffic lights or type in a weirdly-distorted number to prove we're not robots. Recently I was logging into the PlayStation store and was taken aback by theirs, which I've never seen before.

I genuinely can't tell if this is great or terrible. It feels like an abstract logic puzzle from an IQ test, and it took me longer than I'd like to admit to complete it.
