Calm Technology Pdf Book Description:
How do you design technology which becomes part of an individual’s life rather than a diversion from it? This practical book explores the idea of calm technology, a means for easily shooting a user’s attention only when required, while peacefully staying in the background the majority of the time. You’ll find out how to design products which work nicely, launching well, are easy to support, simple to use, and also stay unobtrusive.
Writer Amber Case presents ideas introduced by scientists at Xerox PARC in 1995, and describes how they apply to our existing technology landscape, particularly the Internet of Things. This publication is excellent for both UX and product designers, directors, creative directors, and programmers.
