Designing Smart Things: the UX of ubiquitous computing and the Internet of Things

A session at UX London 2013

Wednesday 10th April, 2013

2:00pm to 5:30pm (GMT)

How do you design a user experience that transcends a single device? Ten devices, some of which may not have screens? How do you design for services that exist simultaneously in your hand and in the cloud? How do you redesign everyday objects to be "smart things" that connect to Web services?

This half-day workshop will introduce you to user experience design for the post-PC/post-phone world, where connectivity and intelligence are embedded in the world around us. Using examples drawn from cutting edge products and smart home technology, Claire will introduce fundamental concepts of user experience design for ubiquitous computing/the Internet of Things.

She will give an overview of emerging trends in this field, and teach you a framework for wrapping your brain around the complexity of this rapidly changing environment to design integrated services, devices and interfaces.

Topics covered will include designing for services used by multiple devices and designing UIs for different device types.
