Consumption directly drives production, and data informs design. If we weren’t talking about physical products, this would sound a lot like Web/app interaction design, but the worlds of making atoms and bits are quickly colliding, and the implications are profound. By mapping what we have learned creating analytics-driven digital design to the physical world, we can change how everything is made, for the better […]
Today, the kinds of input our computing devices support keeps growing: touch, voice, device motion, and much more. Each additional input type offers new possibilities for interaction that requires our interface designs to adapt. When will this deluge of new input types end so don’t have to keep re-designing our software? Luke Wroblewski’s — speaking at dConstruct 2013: — claims it won’t. Not until everything is input […]
