Beyond Mobile: Where No Geek Has Gone Before

A session at 2013 MIMA Summit

Tuesday 15th October, 2013

3:10pm to 4:10pm (CST)

Everyday tech­nol­ogy is hurtling into the realm of sci­ence fic­tion, with new devices that are as sur­pris­ing and delight­ful as they are useful. Developers and design­ers are run­ning hard to keep up with this warp-speed pace of tech inno­va­tion, and for now, mobile devices are at the fore­front. But what’s next? Trends are emerg­ing at the hazy edges of the tech uni­verse that hint at the future of com­puter inter­faces, includ­ing com­put­ers with­out inter­faces at all.

Designer Josh Clark, author of “Tapworthy,” takes you on an expe­di­tion of this final fron­tier. Learn how smart­phones and other sensor-rich devices have changed how we approach com­put­ing, and explore how we can better design for sen­sors. Along the way, you’ll see how games lead the fleet, how robots can help us build our soft­ware, and why post-PC com­put­ing is about far more than phones and tablets. Finally, under­stand how a smart approach to tech­nol­ogy choices now will better pre­pare you for the future – to boldly go where no geek has gone before.
