My Fridge Hates Me. Designing Technology That Respects Us
From wearables and IoT, to apps and RWD, the field of interaction design gets more complex each day. New materials and technologies allow our products to become smarter, faster and connected, all with the promise of improving our lives and communities. However, the more connected we become with our technology and products, the more disconnected we become with the people that matter most. Join Andy, Executive Creative Director at Favorite Medium, as he explores some of the challenges and opportunities product companies face in creating experiences that not only improve our lives, but respect us as well.
