  1. Magical UX and the Internet of Things

    Designers of the future! Set aside your sonic screwdrivers, put down those jetpacks, and step away from the holodeck. Our sci-fi visions of the future often run to the cold and technical, describing a life swallowed by screens, machines, and robot companions. We can do better; the best UX bends technology to the way we live our lives, not the reverse. We can find more humane inspiration in a different kind of fantasy—in the familiar, age-old tales of magic and myth.

    “What if this thing was magic?” should be the opening question for designing any connected device. The internet of things is fundamentally about creating physical interfaces for digital systems, about blessing everyday objects, places, and people with extraordinary abilities. Sharing a rich trove of examples, designer Josh Clark explores the new interactive experiences that are possible when anything can be an interface and magic is your inspiration. Sling content between devices, bring objects to life from a distance, weave “spells” by combining speech and gesture. For designers of the future, it turns out Harry Potter is a better role model than Captain Kirk. Our challenge is not one of technology but of imagination.

    Before the internet swallowed him up, Josh was a producer of national PBS programs at Boston’s WGBH. He shared his three words of Russian with Mikhail Gorbachev, strolled the ranch with Nancy Reagan, hobnobbed with Rockefellers, and wrote trivia questions for a primetime game show. In 1996, he created the uberpopular “Couch-to-5K” (C25K) running program, which has helped millions of skeptical would-be exercisers take up jogging. (His motto is the same for fitness as it is for software user experience: no pain, no pain.)

  2. YOW! Connected 2015 — Josh Clark - Magical UX and the Internet of Things

    “What if this thing was magic?” Designing for the internet of things means blessing everyday objects, places, even people with extraordinary abilities—requiring designers, too, to break with the ordinary. Designing for this new medium 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. Sling content between devices, bring objects to life from a distance, weave ””spells”” by combining speech and gesture. But magic doesn’t have to be otherworldly; 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.

    Josh Clark is the founder of Big Medium, a design agency specializing in connected devices, mobile experiences, and responsive web design. His clients include TechCrunch, Time Inc, eBay, O’Reilly Media, and many others. Josh wrote ””Tapworthy: Designing Great iPhone Apps”” (O’Reilly, 2010) and the forthcoming ””Designing for Touch”” (A Book Apart, 2015).

  4. Design for how the world should work

    As the Internet is increasingly embedded into our physical world, it’s important to start designing for physical and intentional interactions with interfaces to supplement the passive, data-gathering interactions — designing smart devices that service us in the background, but upon which we also can exert our will.

    In this episode, Josh Clark (in an interview) and Tim O’Reilly (in a keynote) both address the importance of designing for contextual awareness and physical interaction. Clark stresses that we’re not facing a challenge of technology, but a challenge of imagination. O’Reilly argues that we’re not paying enough attention to the aspects of people and time in designing the Internet of Things, and that the entire system in which we operate is the user interface — as we design this new world, we must think about user needs first.

  10. ModevUX Preview: Josh Clark Goes Deep on Human Interaction Design

    It’s always awesome to get to chat with Josh Clark.  You might know him from his top selling book, Tapworthy, but Josh is also a veteran lecturer and the driving force behind Global Moxie—a creative agency working with some of today’s biggest industry innovators.

    Josh stopped by the Modev podcast for a great chat—that started out about his two upcoming talks happening at ModevUX May 19-20, but quickly turned into a great conversation about the Internet of Things, human interaction design, privacy, and more, including:

    Josh’s work redesigning for media giants like Time, AOL, eBay, Entertainment Weekly, and TechCrunch

    New digital-meets-physical innovations in healthcare, including his recent work with Asthmapolis

    What we mean by passive vs. intentional interaction in design

    How we eventually, more intuitively manipulate smart objects from a distance (HINT: it’s about the object, not simply bolting on technology)

    Who some of the leaders are in the digital-meets-physical revolution

    The ongoing evolution of device-to-device technologies, designing for good, and privacy concerns

    What we mean by ‘software is political.’

    Give it a listen and let us know what you think! You can get us anytime at hello@gomodev.com

    Josh will be leading a 3-hour workshop – Designing for Touch – on May 19 at ModevUX and will be back on May 20 to deliver our closing keynote.
