  1. 1. “What are you wearing?” People Prototypes Privacy Carol Willing Fab Lab San Diego SD MMF Wearables June 16, 2014
  2. 2. Welcome People Prototypes Privacy Please let me introduce some people from my past
  3. 3. People Differing interests One size doesn’t fit all Human
  4. 4. Prototyping Remember the people while developing the prototype
  5. 5. People centered design – Touch • Gentle • Soft – Sound • Music • Familiar voices – Vision • falling • disorienting
  6. 6. Select your hardware for proof of concept first – Sensors – Brain – Communications Prototyping time has rapidly accelerated. It’s not unusual for a prototype to be created in several weeks. Longer to mass production.
  7. 7. Sensors for movement and activity • MEMS Accelerometers – position in1, 2, or 3 directions – Analog Devices ADXL362 • Gyro – rotation – Invensense ITG-3xxxx • Magnetometer – Honeywell HMC5833L (3-axis digital compass IC) • Pressure and Altitude – Measure small movements – Freescale MPL31152 Source: O’Reilly Solid Conference 2014 – Moe Tanabian, Samsung
  8. 8. Sensor Fusion • Makes prototyping easier by bundling sensors in one IC or board • Monitor movement as the individual sensors Example: Invensense MPU-9150, Sparkfun $35 Hillcrest Labs Freespace FSM-9 Source: O’Reilly Solid Conference 2014 – Moe Tanabian, Samsung
  9. 9. Choose software for ease of development – Modify easily – Modular, reusable code blocks – Arduino IDE – C – Python
  10. 10. Choice: Firmware or Operating System • Do your need 3rd party developers? • Do you need multiprocessing? • If no, firmware should be fine (Arduino) • If yes, OS like Android, Linux, QNX, TinyOS Source: O’Reilly Solid Conference 2014 – Moe Tanabian, Samsung
  11. 11. Consider cases for use over a distance Going beyond just a single user in their immediate environment – Web or monitoring – Communicate with others in area – Android Wear
  12. 12. After proof of concept, iterate as needed • Hardware – Cost – Power – Real estate • Software – Best practices – API – Web applications
  13. 13. Privacy Consideration Provide options
  14. 14. Be mindful when developing • Camera – visual indicator on or off • Data – Ability to turn on or off data collection – user control, opt out – Level of trust • “Big brother” employee interaction and activity monitoring • Legal – HIPAA
  15. 15. What are you wearing? • Questions • Ideas for brainstorming Thank you
