Denne gangen tar vi for os the Internet of Things, etter ønske fra pollen vi gjennomførte i januar. Da vi var på Interaction'14 i Amsterdam i Februar greide vi lokke en av foredragsholderne til Trondheim og er nå både stolte og glade over å kunne gi dere Avi Itzkovitch sinn brede innsikt i nettopp Internet of Things. Vi får også høre fra MOON wearables som satser på dette markedet her i Trondheim.

For å dekke etterspørselen er vi for anledningen i Verkstedhallen.

The Internet of Experience: Designing smart objects v/Avi Itzkovitch

The Internet of Things, describes a world where identified objects and connected devices will revolutionize the way we interact with technology. As designers are now challenged to design interactions for physical objects; Beyond designing for the screen, we are now designing for the pure experience. 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. In his presentation, Avi will relate the story and myth of the “Smart” Fridge, discuss the UX for wearable devices, and, most importantly, inspire designers by revealing insights into the thought processes and principles designing for the Internet of Things.

Avi is the owner of IoT News Network, an independent resource for the Internet of Things. He is a longtime interactive and web design professional with over 13 years of experience. Author of Design-It-Yourself: Web Sites (Rockport Publishers, 2003), Avi has published several articles about user experience and is often invited to speak about these publications, as well as other emerging design and UX trends. Avi is currently working as an Independent UI/UX Consultant at his studio, XG Media in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Markedet for Wearables sett fra Trondheim v/Jørgen Veisdal, MOON Wearables

Med oss denne gangen har vi også fått lokale krefter. Jørgen Veisdal, CEO og Product Architect i MOON Wearables her i Trondheim, kommer for å gi oss en orientering om markedet for wearables og potensialet de ser i dette fremover.

MOON ble etablert i 2013 på NTNUs Entreprenørskole av studenter fra industriell design, elektronikk og informatikk.

Den nye og ambisiøse oppstartsbedriften samarbeider tett med teknologi- og designmiljøet i Trondheim for å utvikle sitt eget unike wearable produkt. I sommer tar bedriften med prototyper til Silicon Valley i USA for å drive forretningsutvikling og prøve samle interesse for prosjektet blant investorer.
