Why the Core77 Conference is About User Experience

On June 19th, a relatively small group of people will gather at 501 Union street in Brooklyn, NY to present and discuss ideas that are defining our modern object culture. The Core77 Conference speaker line up includes, among others, a UX lead at Google X, a wearable technology designer and a guy brazen enough to suggest that putting a floating swimming pool in the East River would be a great way to clean it up. At first glance, this event may not look like a typical conference for an interaction designer, but at the core of each presentation, you’ll find a reverence for the human experience and the way we interact with the world around us. Each speaker is bringing their take on a problem to be solved or a possibility to realize based on current or future scenarios. At its heart, that’s what all UX and interaction designers attempt, isn’t it? Below are a few of the presentation summaries from speakers who will be at the Core77 Conference and why these are important topics for UX designers. You can get your ticket to this event here while they’re still available (only 200 seats for sale). The Integrated Technology Panel – Integrating Technology into our Daily Lives, at Two Levels At the personal and global levels, Ricardo Prada, UX Lead at Google X, and Becky Stern, Director of Wearable Electronics at Adafruit Industries, will discuss the huge potential, and possible pitfalls, of seamlessly melding new technologies into our everyday experience of the world. From balloon-based Internet access and self-driving cars to DIY, wearable electronics, the integration of technology into...

UX Week 2014: Meet the Keynotes

Every year, when we set about the task of choosing speakers for UX Week, we look for people who can bring a broad perspective to the challenges facing experience designers today. I’m particularly excited about this year’s keynotes because they may represent the most diverse range we’ve seen yet. For years, Dwell magazine’s coverage of architecture and interior design has been a major source of inspiration for the designers at Adaptive Path — not just for the obvious aesthetic appeal of the living spaces they feature, but for the clear interest they have in the way people interact with those spaces. That’s why we’re particularly excited to have Dwell editor-in-chief Amanda Dameron as our opening keynote. Amanda will be talking about the emerging patterns she’s seeing in how architects and interior designers are creating practical spaces with emotional appeal. We’ve been trying for a long time to get digital product design thinker Josh Clark at UX Week, and I’m happy to say we finally nabbed him. Josh is the author of the book Tapworthy: Designing Great iPhone Apps, and he’ll be sharing his thoughts on the deeper principles driving the evolution of digital products in the 21st Century to close out day one of UX Week. He may be best known for taking Alex Trebek to the cleaner 74 times in a row, but author Ken Jennings is also a serious design geek — specifically about maps, and the myriad ways people have used maps to communicate over the centuries. He wrote a whole book on the subject, and he’ll share with us his insights from a lifelong interest in how map...
