What is the talk about?

Many connected products fail to live up to their potential. Kevin Cannon has spent the last few years designing products like connected coffee machines and smart lights. In this talk, he’ll take an honest look at what he’s learned, when he’s failed and why smart home isn’t really fulfilling its potential. He’ll explore why it’s unusually hard to design for and looks at what it’ll take to become mainstream.

About the speaker

Kevin is a Principal Designer at frog specializing in Interaction Design. He has designed medical devices, smart home products, and museum exhibitions and has cried in many usability tests along the way. His favorite Twitter feed is the @internetofshit account and his goal when designing products is to avoid being featured on it. To date, he has not been 100% successful in that goal. Ask nicely and he might even tell you why.
