Our Keynotes

Liza KindredLiza Kindred
WTF Wearable?!

Everyone loves to use the phrase wearable tech–and to talk about how many billions there are to be made - but if wearables are so great, why so many suck? Author and fashion tech strategist Liza Kindred takes a look at the missteps so far and proposes a new way that finally goes beyond strapping a screen on your wrist - or throwing a sensor in a bracelet. The landscape is fractured, the technology is burgeoning, and the real adoption is just getting started. Liza shares a corrective vision for how to make the most of the amazing opportunity - instead of creating more glassholes. >More here.

Magical UX and the Internet of Things

Designing for the Internet of Things is less a challenge of technology than imagination. Sharing a rich trove of examples, designer and author Josh Clark explores the new experiences that are possible when anything can be an interface. The digital manipulation of physical objects (and vice versa) effectively turns all of us into wizards. The UX of connected devices should build on the natural physical interactions we have everyday with the world around us. The new UX must bend technology to the way we live our lives, not the reverse. Explore the values and design principles that amplify our humanity, not just our superpowers. >More here
