A Designerly Perspective on IoT
Tangible and rich interaction design, iterative design processes, growing systems.
Content of Specialization Course
The challenge of the elective was to design a rich interactive media controller for IoT systems in the home environment. From Ideation with cardboard models evolved to proof-of-concept prototypes through an intense progressive-iterative design process. This process was accompanied by weekly literature readings to gain understanding academically and directly apply the knowledge into the design decision-making. Our final design is a media remote with the capabilities of seamlessly couple and decouple two media functionalities with each other. For example, a smart lighting systems would complement the colors of the videos played from smart television.
