    Making the internet of things Making the internet of things Presentation Transcript

    • Making the internet of things. @iotwatch designswarm.com goodnightlamp.com
    • This talk in 2 points. “Making” is challenging traditional design processes. Design can learn and use this.
    • PS: This is not a neo-liberal idea. http://adrianshort.org/2014/02/06/ year-of-code-neoliberal-agenda/
    • Interaction Design Institute Ivrea 2004-2006 Tinker London 2007-2010 Good Night Lamp March 2012
    • What is #iot? When we embed connectivity in everyday objects. What happens when those objects are designed with an understanding of the affordances of the web.
    • Design to extend. Your product extends the capabilities of an existing device. It’s tethered to a mobile phone. If connectivity is lost, the object becomes unusable because its control interface is inaccessible. Non-objects, more like accessories.
    • Design to comfort. Piggy-back on an existing product and augment it with connectivity. Technology is invisible so everything looks normal. You may be redefining a user’s assumptions about a product.
    • Design to disrupt. Develop a design language that is unique to users’ interaction with a new technology. Developing a new visual language consumers. Develop a new space in retail.
    • 2 communities vs
    • Who are makers? Computer Scientists with an interest in hardware. Hardware engineers interested in developing new products. Artists.
    • Arduino. Raspberry Pi.
    • Invention.
    • Design.
    • Design. CAD, Workshops, Rapid prototyping, sketching, user reseach.
    • Making.
    • A maker process
    • Making. Make magazine, Arduino Sparkfun / LadyAda, Wired TechShops, FabLab, Hackspaces RaspberryPi
    • Making.
    • Plants. Botanicalls. 2007, ITP
    • Plants. EasyBloom Moistly Parrot Koubachi Plantlink
    • IOT’s future. Some ideas just keep being repeated until a larger player gets involved.
    • A maker’s USP. The value is in the doing. There’s an eagerness to build even if no problem is solved.
    • A designers USP. Empathy Instinct Craftmanship
    • The potential. Understand the limits of the network “There are just certain things you just can’t get electrons to do” - Steve Jobs
    • The potential. Embracing open processes with the maker community.
