UX design for the internet of things

A session at World Usability Day 2013 Bristol

Thursday 14th November, 2013

3:00pm to 3:30pm (GMT)

Connectivity, sensing and intelligence are becoming embedded in ever more physical objects, enabling new ways of understanding and engaging with the world around us. To date, much of the focus in this field has been around solving connectivity challenges, but as the technology matures, understanding how to create compelling and usable everyday applications for mass market users will be crucial to success. How is UX design changing as it moves beyond the screen and into the objects around us?
