Internet of Thing & Thing Centered Design

Douglas Atkinson (UAL-LCF)

This lecture introduces the concept of the Internet of Things and briefly discusses the history of connected wearable technologies. Next it outlines the principles of ‘Posthuman Ethnographies’ and ‘Thing Centred Design’ as approaches to document, understand and analyse the life of a non-human thing and its everyday interactions with humans and other things. Finally the lecture concludes by exploring how this analysis can inform the development of design requirements for an IOT fashion wearable.

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe and define the principles of ‘Posthuman Ethnographies’ and ‘Thing Centred Design’.
  • Develop design requirements for an IOT fashion wearable.
