Why Make the Internet of Things?
Conferences & Talks

California College of the Arts, Graduate Program in Design

30 October 2014
CCA SF Campus, San Francisco, California



There’s a lot of hype today around the Internet of Things, but there are few clear descriptions of what it is, why it’s valuable, and how to design for it. This talk will describe one approach for thinking about why we make the Internet of Things, and how it’s different than just making more gadgets. In the process, the talk discusses the effects that the IoT has on consumers, on developers and on business models and touches on both user experience and service design.
