“What are you wearing?” People Prototypes Privacy Carol Willing Fab Lab San Diego SD MMF Wearables June 16, 2014
WelcomePeople Prototypes Privacy Please let me introduce some people from my past
People Differing interests One size doesn’t fit all Human
Prototyping Remember the people while developing the prototype
People centered design Touch Gentle Soft Sound Music Familiar voices Vision falling disorienting
Select your hardwarefor proof of concept first Sensors Brain Communications Prototyping time has rapidly accelerated. It’s not unusual for a prototype to be created in several weeks. Longer to mass production.
Sensors for movement and activity MEMS Accelerometers – position in1, 2, or 3 directions Analog Devices ADXL362 Gyro – rotation Invensense ITG-3xxxx Magnetometer Honeywell HMC5833L (3-axis digital compass IC) Pressure and Altitude – Measure small movements Freescale MPL31152 Source: O’Reilly Solid Conference 2014 – Moe Tanabian, Samsung
Sensor Fusion Makes prototyping easier by bundling sensors in one IC or board Monitor movement as the individual sensors Example: Invensense MPU-9150, Sparkfun $35 Hillcrest Labs Freespace FSM-9 (state of the art) Source: O’Reilly Solid Conference 2014 – Moe Tanabian, Samsung
Choose software for ease of development Modify easily Modular, reusable code blocks Arduino IDE C Python
Choice: Firmware or Operating System Do your need 3rd party developers? Do you need multiprocessing? If no, firmware should be fine (Arduino) If yes, OS like Android, Linux, QNX, TinyOS Source: O’Reilly Solid Conference 2014 – Moe Tanabian, Samsung
Consider cases for useover a distance Going beyond just a single user in their immediate environment Web or monitoring Communicate with others in area Android Wear
After proof of concept,iterate as needed Hardware Cost Power Real estate Software Best practices API Web applications
Privacy Consideration Provide options
Be mindful when developing Camera – visual indicator on or off Data Ability to turn on or off data collection user control, opt out Level of trust “Big brother” employee interaction and activity monitoring Legal – HIPAA
What are you wearing? Questions Ideas for brainstorming Thank you
