Everyware - "the future is already here, it's just not well distributed yet"

2,589 views

Published on

In this Ignite presentation, I examine the notion of "everyware" - the merging and flowing of data and content between virtual and real spaces and the layering of virtual content onto the real world. Although this isn't hugely new, I argue that the growing convergence between device ubiquity, network speed, lowering cost, user familiarity, accurate LBS, geo-lo'd services and higher computing power points to a horizon where everyware is becoming a reality at last

  • @blackbeltjones - yes, good plan - have done so. Actually, the microprinter pics are of mine, but I stole the idea from Tom Taylor so have credited him, too...

  • Probably should point people to the social letterbox by Schulze & Webb / Microprinter code and engineering by Tom Taylor (http://tomtaylor.co.uk/projects/microprinter/). Perhaps replace this slideshow with a revised version with credits / citations...

Everyware - "the future is already here, it's just not well distributed yet"

  1. 1. Everyware <ul><li>&quot;the future is already here, </li></ul><ul><li>it's just not well distributed yet&quot; </li></ul>
  2. 2. wassat? ubiquitous computing data mobile web QR-tag internet virtual reality API network effects invisible technology usability services location devices identity RFID barcode feed
  3. 3. real-world virtual experiences <ul><li>virtual content is rich, clever and quick </li></ul><ul><li>..but we don’t live in a virtual space, we live in a real one (mostly) </li></ul><ul><li>“ everyware” means looking at content merging and flowing between the two </li></ul>
  4. 4. why is this important? <ul><li>extra layers of information </li></ul><ul><li>easily accessible </li></ul><ul><li>starting (as we’ll see) to be easy... </li></ul><ul><li>...which means the virtual is an adjunct rather than a replacement to the “real” experience </li></ul>
  5. 5. examples? <ul><li>tikitag / violet / nabaztag </li></ul><ul><li>botanicalls </li></ul><ul><li>“ ambient umbrella” </li></ul><ul><li>wikitude ( http://www.mobilizy.com ) </li></ul>
  6. 6. more..? <ul><li>barcoded objects > barcoded environments </li></ul><ul><li>RFID </li></ul><ul><li>Bluetooth (Cityware / Facebook) </li></ul><ul><li>..and, yes, mobile web browsing </li></ul>
  7. 7. I’ve heard it all before <ul><li>well, yes, this kind of notion has been around a while </li></ul>“ Our preliminary approach: Activate the world. Provide hundreds of wireless computing devices per person per office, of all scales” Xerox PARC, 1996 http://sandbox.xerox.com/ubicomp
  8. 8. ..but now is a special time <ul><li>finally beginning to see a convergence of several factors which make a real, non-clunky, “invisible technology” solution possible </li></ul><ul><li>...or at least some exciting hints which look like they’ll become everyware-like </li></ul>
  9. 9. what is it of which you speak? everyware devices location network services content computing power
  10. 10. devices <ul><li>we all have “a device” </li></ul><ul><li>1.15bn new handsets last year </li></ul><ul><li>(of which 90% have colour web browser) </li></ul><ul><li>cheap, small, replaceable (~every 14 months) </li></ul><ul><li>1.2bn &quot;mobile web&quot; users </li></ul><ul><li>devices themselves as sensors (more later) </li></ul>Source: Tomi Ahonen Almanac 2009 http://tinyurl.com/mobile-ref-1
  11. 11. network <ul><li>GPRS, EDGE, 3G </li></ul><ul><li>WIFI and (possibly) WIMAX </li></ul><ul><li>cheaper </li></ul><ul><li>faster </li></ul><ul><li>more available </li></ul><ul><li>more marketed </li></ul>
  12. 12. location <ul><li>cell(+) location </li></ul><ul><li>gps (if you’re outside) </li></ul><ul><li>+ some WIFI location </li></ul><ul><li>mobile OS starting to be location aware </li></ul><ul><li>..but more to the point, many geocoding services available </li></ul><ul><li>..and millions of geocoded resources </li></ul>
  13. 13. computing power <ul><li>(mobile) computing power is increasing at a huge rate </li></ul><ul><li>mobiles will be (are!) the platform of choice </li></ul><ul><li>at the same time, the services themselves are fast enough to cope </li></ul>
  14. 14. content <ul><li>vast swathes of stuff is now available via API’s, which effectively means “on any device” </li></ul><ul><li>example: 100 million CC’d images on Flickr, many of which are geocoded </li></ul><ul><li>not to mention Google.. </li></ul>
  15. 15. services <ul><li>real-time access to services </li></ul><ul><li>realistic access times across our (nearly) ubiquitous networks </li></ul><ul><li>availability of these services is high, and they are usually free or cheap </li></ul>
  16. 16. tagging and flagging <ul><li>once you begin to tag stuff, all sorts of other things can happen </li></ul><ul><li>examples include RFID, QR code, barcode </li></ul><ul><li>unique id + x,y,z = tracking </li></ul>
  17. 17. &quot;vastpoint sensing&quot; <ul><li>twitter as sensor grid </li></ul><ul><ul><li>weather </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>hayfever </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>current mood </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>...not to mention news </li></ul></ul><ul><li>ambient / non-ambient crowd-sourcing </li></ul>
  18. 18. devices as sensors <ul><li>how about: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>traffic reports based on real-time movement data (density, speed and direction) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>weather data based on real-time brightness, temperature, etc </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>self-correcting maps based on crowd-sourcing gps data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>camera? audio? altitude? </li></ul></ul>
  19. 19. cheap hacks --> invisible <ul><li>arduino </li></ul><ul><li>the networked printer :-) </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.pachube.com </li></ul><ul><li>free and available API's </li></ul>
  20. 20. privacy? <ul><li>well, yes, but often about education rather than technology </li></ul><ul><li>more often than not, the benefits can be gained without specificity </li></ul>
  21. 21. predictions (dangerous..) <ul><li>we'll see further increases of network and device speeds </li></ul><ul><li>..perhaps rolling out of city-wide networks </li></ul><ul><li>..but also understanding and embedding of the possibilities into the psyche of users </li></ul><ul><li>the tendency to move away from geek and closer to invisible </li></ul>thanks for listening
