- #iot The internet of things can be loosely defined as: 1. what happens when we embed connectivity in everyday objects. 2. what happens when those objects are designed with an understanding of the affordances of the web.
- the shape of the conversation Hardware (open/closed) Connectivity (wifi, zigbee/radio, GSM) Battery life Standards Privacy Security What things?
- What things? Smart cities Smart cars Home automation Products as part of an ecology.
- 3 approaches. 1. Design to extend. 2. Design to comfort. 3. Design to disrupt.
- Your product extends the capabilities of an existing device. Its tethered to a screen. If connectivity is lost, the object becomes unusable because its control interface is inaccessible. Non-objects, more like accessories. Design to extend.
