Smart Things: Ubiquitous Computing User Experience Design by Mike Kuniavsky

By Mike Kuniavsky

The global of shrewdpermanent sneakers, home equipment, and telephones is already right here, however the perform of consumer event (UX) layout for ubiquitous computing remains to be rather new. layout businesses like IDEO and frogdesign are on a regular basis requested to layout items that unify software program interplay, machine layout and repair layout -- that are the entire key elements of ubiquitous computing UX -- and working towards designers want a approach to take on functional demanding situations of layout. concept isn't adequate for them -- fortunately the is now mature adequate to have attempted and verified most sensible practices and case experiences from the field.

Smart Things provides a problem-solving method of addressing designers' wishes and concentrates on approach, instead of technological aspect, to maintain from being quick superseded. It will pay shut realization to the functions and obstacles of the medium in query and discusses the tradeoffs and demanding situations of layout in a advertisement setting. Divided into sections,  frameworks and methods, the e-book discusses wide layout tools and case experiences that replicate key elements of those techniques. The publication then provides a collection of strategies hugely beneficial to a working towards fashion designer. it really is deliberately no longer a accomplished educational of user-centered design'as that's lined in lots of different books'but it's a handful of concepts valuable while designing ubiquitous computing consumer experiences.

In brief, Smart Things offers its readers either the "why" of this type of layout and the "how," in well-defined chunks.

  • Tackles layout of goods within the post-Web international the place pcs not need to be monolithic, dear general-purpose devices
  • Features large frameworks and techniques, sensible recommendation to aid process specifics, and methods for the original layout challenges
  • Presents case reviews that describe, intimately, how others have solved difficulties, controlled trade-offs, and met successes
