As the cost of computation and connectivity plummets, manufacturers are going to put ‘interactivity’ into every device. Some of this will be trivial: my power adaptor knows its charging history. Some of it will be control related: my television will be grand central for my smart home. But at is heart, we’ll be swimming in world where every device will have ‘an app.’
What does this mean for us as designers and curators of experiences? This talk will discuss how the principles of the open web must apply not only to prototocols but to hardware as well. How can we make sure the menagerie of devices has a chance for working together?
