All are involved in their own style of creative process and are keen to show off their newest creations.

    Questions answered :
    How can new technologies be used to craete new jewellery previously impossible to make by hand? How does it answer the context of exhibition and wearability?

  • Designing the Mobile Wallet

    by Tim Caynes

    Do you have a wallet in your pocket? Do you also have a mobile in your pocket? Isn't that really annoying? Don't worry, mobile network providers, device manufacturers and banking corporations are already working together to provide the solution you never knew you needed - the mobile wallet. But what is a mobile wallet and how should it work? What are the customer experiences that a good mobile wallet solution should support? In this session we will talk about a project for a major network provider and what we learned about designing the mobile wallet, including: o Understanding and validating the multi-channel user journeys o Developing an information architecture o Designing and developing wireframes and prototypes for multiple mobile devices o Conducting usability testing with multiple mobile devices o Working with multiple technology platforms and service providers We'll discuss what went well, what went not quite so well and what caused us to throw mobile devices across the office (clue: this happened quite often). Questions answered : What is a mobile wallet? Why would anyone want one? What are the user experience considerations when designing a mobile wallet? How many times can you throw a mobile phone against a wall?

  • Table Top: Open design - science engagement

    by Robert Phillips

    The public are engaging with the process of manufacturing their own products through digital fabrication. When people have this much freedom to create their own objects, who has the responsibility for their disposal? Open design is embracing this democratisation of innovation and enabling people to make their own products with greater ease: this maker movement will soon change the way we think about products. This approach is not a replacement for mass manufacture but an extension of what is achievable with a new toolbox, solving different problems and addressing new needs. These digital tools are enabling participants with limited skill to create objects… but are they products yet?

    Questions answered :
    Engaging with a wider audience, widening participation, the ability to bounce concepts off a wider audience and predictions of how this could work in the future.

  • Dissecting the Gloop: Anatomy of an Away3D project on mobile

    by Rob Bateman

    With AIR 3.2, hardware acceleration in Flash has been let loose on mobile, presenting huge potential for mobile developers looking to simplify their publishing process across platforms. However, Stage3D is still relatively recent technology, so what can we do when trying to establish an effective workflow for production? Rob Bateman from Away3D takes you through some of the approaches used on their recent game Gloop-a-Hoop, released on iOS, Android and Facebook earlier this month.
