Visit Bookmark

Wearable devices are everywhere now. The revolution has started and it doesn’t seem to be halting anytime soon. Along with it, they bring exciting challenges for people who design for them. This article from Fjord talks about five thoughts or principles for the wearable revolution. Which are:

  1. Balancing public and personal
  2. Keeping it glanceable
  3. Leveraging non-visual UI
  4. Being aware of data avalanche
  5. Minding the gaps.

The article is presented in a fairly simple format, sugar coated with funny animation gifs. It explains a great deal of info for anyone who is in the business of building apps for wearable devices.
