[0010]    An example embodiment of the present disclosure may include one or more of a method, computing device, computer-readable medium, and system for enhanced interaction design elements.


[0011]    The patent or application file contains at least one drawing executed in color. Copies of this patent or patent application publication with color drawing(s) will be provided by the Office upon request and payment of the necessary fee.

[0012]    Implementations of various technologies will hereafter be described with reference to the accompanying drawings.  It should be understood, however, that the accompanying drawings illustrate only the various implementations described herein and are not meant to limit the scope of various technologies described herein. 

[0013]            Figure 1 illustrates a computer system into which implementations of various technologies and techniques described herein.

[0014]            Figures 2-3 illustrate various aspects of example embodiments of the present disclosure.



[0015]    Fig. 1 below shows components of an example of a computing system 100 and an example of a networked system 110. 

[0016]    The system 100 includes one or more processors 102, memory and/or storage components 104, one or more input and/or output devices 106 and a bus 108.  In an example embodiment, instructions may be stored in one or more computer-readable media (e.g., memory/storage components 104).  Such instructions may be read by one or more processors (e.g., the processor(s) 102) via a communication bus (e.g., the bus 108), which may be wired or wireless.  The one or more processors may execute such instructions to implement (wholly or in part) one or more attributes (e.g., as part of a method). ...
