from philiplikens, ago in
Presented at UXPA 2015 in San Diego From the conference program: Let’s go zero to wireframe with wearables! Wearables can be tough to understand and design for, especially if you don’t have experience with the hardware. In one evening we’ll get you up to speed on wearable technology. We’ll talk about two trends, context and continuity, and focus on how those trends will impact the user experience of screen-based wearables. Then we’ll spend the rest of our time getting hands-on by wire framing a smart watch app. In this workshop we will: + Explore the world of wearables, and hone in on smart watches. + Explore the challenges that come along with screen-based wearables – specifically context and continuity. + Get hands-on with smart watches – wireframing a smart watch app with feedback and discussion.

experiencecontinuum-filiveDesigning the Experience Continuum: Typography in the Age of the Connected Everything (Jason Pamental)
from futureinsights, ago in
Taken from the Future Insights Live, Vegas 2015 event. https://futureinsightslive.com/las-vegas-2015/ With the explosion of small-form-factor, low-cost connected devices like fitness trackers, medical devices and ‘smart dashboards’, the spectrum across which we communicate has gotten broader than ever. When thinking about using a wearable fitness tracker with a small screen, how it connects from a design perspective to the ‘connected app’, to the desktop health tracker portal and even to TV/print advertising for that product—there are very few elements that translate across all those screens and devices to tie the experience together. The type we use plays an increasingly important role in conveying critical information in a consistent and ‘glance-able’ way, and in getting across brand voice and creating emotional connection between user and device and organization. This talk will explore how new developments in technology and cognitive science extend the reach of our design landscape from the smallest to the biggest of screens.
