The UX Grid of IoT

Speaker:  Scott Jenson – Mountain View, CA, United States
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


The "Internet of Things" is too broad a concept. It can be many things and that is a source of confusion. This 2x2 matrix of the UX Grid of IoT is a simple breakdown but it allows for a much more nuanced conversation. By breaking things up as Foreground/Background vs Device/Swarm you create 4 quadrants that each have very unique behaviors. In addition, it allows you to discuss how devices move from one quandrant to the next.

This talk lays out this 2x2 grid, discusses categories for devices for each and how UX patterns and issues for each. But whats exciting is that this simple breakdown allows for a more complex discussion of how devices can start in one area and move to the next, creating more sophisticated devices.
