Radiators, letterboxes, cuckoo clocks and cars: the new computing

A session at UX London 2013

Wednesday 10th April, 2013

12:15pm to 1:00pm (GMT)

Computing power doubles every 18 months, so we’re now at the point where computing is cheap enough and good enough to embed it everywhere. In fact, it’s cheaper for product manufacturers to include a general purpose OS than write their own embedded systems, and it's cheaper for them to include touch screens, sensors and networking than not. We now have ubiquitous Internet in our handheld devices, but what happens when we embed information and sensing in the environment, both in public and in our private spaces? Will we even have or need these objects we currently call computers? How do we move from personal computers to shared, semi-public information? We'll look at current prototypes and examine how they change interaction and behaviour.
