Designing the Internet of Experience with Avi Itzkovitch
This is one of the workshops we arrange as a part of the UX, Service Design and Innovation conference From Business to Buttons 2015. More information about the main event can be found on the conference website.
The Internet of things, describes a world where identified objects and connected devices will revolutionize the way we interact with technology. As product designers we are now challenged to design interactions for physical objects; beyond designing for the touch screen, we are now designing for the experience, and the experience becomes the product. But what are these experiences look like? And how will UX play a key role in the Internet of Things?
Join speaker Avi Itzkovitch to discover the Internet of Things. And learn how a pack of chewing gum purchased in 1974 started a chain reaction that led to this newest phase of the digital revolution.
