This week at the San Francisco Wearable Technology Conference, Jennifer Darmour, UX designer at the Artefact Group, shared with other wearable technology experts her perspective and insights on the principles we must follow to make wearable technology more compelling to a broad consumer market.
Through the successes and failures of her research and design in the consumer electronics and wearable technology fields, she has developed four foundational principles, which if adopted will accelerate making wearable technology mainstream.
1 Contextual : Understanding your audience and what they need to improve their lives
2 Discreet : Pushing the technology to the background so it’s non-disruptive and ambient
3 Connected : Connecting to software and services that bring more value to the experience
4 Fashionable : Removing the geek-factor toward a broader consumer market
