In this month’s Bunnytalk our Founder, Dr Jon Dodd, talked about future technologies. With the introduction of Google Glass, Oculus Rift, smart watches and other wearables, we’re entering a new age in consumer technologies but our needs as humans don’t change so quickly. Designers face the challenge of finding genuine purpose for these technologies in our lives.
Continuing on from this theme, James Bailey (a consultant and Interaction Designer at Bunnyfoot) looked at the Internet of Things. He asked the big questions: what is its purpose, and how do we design for what people really need? User-centred design is the answer.
