Designing for Emerging Technologies: UX for Genomics, Robotics, and the Internet of Things
The recent digital and mobile revolutions are a minor blip compared to the next wave of technological change, as everything from robot swarms to skin-top embeddable computers and bio printable organs start appearing in coming years. In this collection of inspiring essays, designers, engineers, and researchers discuss their approaches to experience design for groundbreaking technologies.
Design not only provides the framework for how technology works and how it 's used, but also places it in a broader context that includes the total ecosystem with which it interacts and the possibility of unintended consequences. If you re a UX designer or engineer open to complexity and dissonant ideas, this book is a revelation.
