Mainstream mobile devices are being loaded with sensors. These devices can be used to create experiences that are tailored, adaptive and responsive to the way people live and work. Location-awareness allows devices to respond to place, networked address books enable socially rich communication experiences, and motion and gestural sensors empower designers to respond to context of use. All these elements are creating a ’sensitive ecosystem’; mobile devices that adapt gracefully to context and use.

This presentation will explore some of the design and technology trends that are shaping design for mobile devices, show examples of devices and services that are starting to take advantage of these trends, then explain how designers need to rethink design problems to take advantage of this technological ground-shift.

  • 4. // START HERE What does sensing mean for mobile?
  • 5. // START HERE How do people and devices communicate intent?
  • 6. // START HERE A lot of this comes down to context
  • 7. // SITUATIONAL CONTEXT Context is the defining problem of the design of mobile devices
  • 8. // SITUATIONAL CONTEXT Let’s talk about situational context
  • 9. // SITUATIONAL CONTEXT Situational context = What’s going on around the device?

  • 21. // CONVERSATIONAL CONTEXT Versus
  • 22. // CONVERSATIONAL CONTEXT Explicit & Declarative vs Implicit & Gestural
  • 23. // CONVERSATIONAL CONTEXT Technological Making devices smarter about what’s going on by adding sensors.
  • 24. // CONVERSATIONAL CONTEXT Social Making people smarter by adding information and cues that help them make better judgments.
