Reorientating UX Design for the Internet of Things
We used to go to our desks to connect to the Internet, now the Internet is in our pockets. Next year, it will be common to access online information on our wrists, from our eyeglasses, and inside our cars. By 2017, 'mobile first' will become irrelevant because information access will not only be on us but all around us. Welcome to the Internet of Things, or 'IoT' in short.
What will IoT mean for us designers, who are still helping our companies come to terms with Responsive Design? Internet of Things will create many new opportunities but also fundamental shifts in our work. As a designer of wearable devices, a service designer and the founder of the San Francisco Internet of Things Meetup, I want to share my experience and observations on how UX designers can start to investigate 4 areas and begin a conversation in this new era of information access.
