  37. 37. September 18, 2013 37 Becoming part of everyday life Products have to be “about” something: flexible platforms like NinjaBlocks and Twine are amazing for developers but most people need a clear sense of purpose and need Data must be truly meaningful, compelling and fairly complete: fitness trackers are great for runners and walkers, but what about cyclists and skaters? Information should come from multiple sources: my Withings scale and associated data is helpful, but I’m still the one making blind guesses regarding what’s changed Products must be easy to set up and install, giving us feedback in a human language: with most new wireless products, we are still a long way from plug and play Vigilance and privacy must be balanced: keeping a constant eye on your home is valuable, but design should provide feedback regarding what is being watched, when Power requirements are always challenging: dealing with cords and batteries detracts from the experience.
