Future of Design

  1. 1. The Future of Design
  2. 2. a bit about me
  3. 3. and a bit about you?
  4. 4. humans + technology
  5. 5. what is the “future of design”?
  6. 6. seriously, what does that even mean?
  7. 7. new technology, new challenges
  8. 8. for example: industrial design
  9. 9. computation
  10. 10. architects, don’t feel left out!
  11. 11. spatial interfaces + wearables
  12. 12. but first a word of caution
  13. 13. skepticism
  14. 14. spatial interfaces: gestural interfaces
  15. 15. leap https://www.leapmotion.com
  16. 16. kepler https://vimeo.com/44828764
  17. 17. mezzanine http://www.oblong.com/ mezzanine/benefits/
  18. 18. case study leap sculpting demo http://blog.leapmotion.com/ designing-leap-motion- sculpting-app/
  19. 19. • 3d motion for 3d modeling is a natural pairing • high levels of feedback is essential, especially for z axis motion • edge targets are easy to trigger accidentally and even more problematic when leaving them chooses a selection • how do you control object orientation and use tools?
  20. 20. spatial interfaces: augmented reality
  21. 21. perch interactive http:// www.perchinteractive.com
  22. 22. onsight https://youtu.be/DXT- ynvI3Lg
  23. 23. case study perch shoes demo http:// www.perchinteractive.com/ womens-shoes-vertical/
  24. 24. • place information in a physical context • targeted information delivery • slow to respond to user actions • higher production value would help
  25. 25. wearables
  26. 26. wearables: the establishment
  27. 27. fitbit http://www.fitbit.com
  28. 28. wearables: women first design
  29. 29. ringly https://ringly.com
  30. 30. bellabeat https://www.bellabeat.com
  31. 31. but…
  32. 32. does that really help anyone?
  33. 33. wearables: conceptual directions

  38. 38. questions?
  39. 39. now
  40. 40. let’s design our own wearables!
