Presentation: Wearables in the Wild: Exploring and Exploiting new Opportunities for Great Mobile User Experiences

Track: UX - Visibility, Usability, Graphics / Time: Thursday 15:50 - 16:40 / Location: Hall 6

Should we believe in the hype of wearables? The technology has been around for decades, but lately major players in the consumer electronics space started shipping out a vast array of glasses, watches and other wearable products for the masses.

Will these devices see the same adoption as smartphones - and how will this change the way we will be interacting with information and services in the near-future?

This talk explores how designers and developers can take advantage of new interaction paradigms and practical design guidelines to maximize the potential of wearables by re-thinking them into the mobile context of use.
