Developing smart connected products isn’t a simple task, and we believe that before generating ideas and sketching solutions, designers should focus on problem framing.
The kit offers a framework of relevant topics and specific questions. It highlights the key aspects and features that smart devices should possess and that should be kept in mind while designing for the Internet of Things.
The elements of the kit may be used during different phases of the design process, supporting activities such as research, user studies, benchmarking, brainstorming, interaction design, UX definition, CMF, project development, and evaluation.
The MappingTheIoT toolkit is made up of three elements that can be used freely or for structured activities, alone or with a team. Is licensed under a Creative Commons License and is ready to be downloaded and printed.
