Magical UX and the Internet of Things with Josh Clark
Designing for the Internet of things means blessing everyday objects, places, even people with extraordinary abilities—requiring designers, too, to break with the ordinary. Designing for this new medium is less a challenge of technology than imagination. Join Josh as he shows how the digital manipulation of physical objects turns us into wizards; how to sling content between devices; bring objects to life from a distance and weave “spells” by combining speech and gesture.
Josh is founder of Big Medium, a design agency specializing in connected devices, mobile experiences and responsive web design. His clients include Samsung, TechCrunch and eBay. Josh’s books include Designing for Touch and Tapworthy: Designing Great iPhone Apps. Before the Internet swallowed him up, Josh was a producer of national PBS programs. In 1996, he created the “Couch-to-5K” running program, which has helped millions of would-be exercisers take up jogging. (His motto is the same for fitness as it is for software user experience: no pain, no pain.)
