Discovering Physical-Digital Spaces

Augmented Reality. Internet of Things. Robotics. Smart home devices. What these all have in common is physical space. In a world where “design” in tech has meant creating interfaces for flat screens for the past 40 years, these new spatial technologies represent something dramatically different. For the first time, technology can understand the spaces where we live and work, allowing the physical and digital to merge in ways that were never before possible. Spatial awareness and head-mounted displays also unlock access to users, industries, and spaces that information technology has not traditionally served.

In order to create products and services that fulfill the potential of spatial technologies, designers must recognize the limitations of the standard tools we use to design for screens today, and embrace new approaches to product discovery and validation.

In this talk, I share principles that have guided my work with spatial technology companies and created measurable value for emerging technology businesses and their users.
