Book

Claire Rowland is lead author of the book Designing Connected Products (O’Reilly, 2015).

“This is more than a UX book; it covers all of the critical design and technology issues around making great connected products.”

– David Rose, author of “Enchanted Objects”

“As a grizzled veteran of several campaigns within the matter-battle of the Internet of Things, I was pleasantly surprised to find the number of times this book made me pause, think, and rethink my own work (and that of others). A very valuable addition to the canon of design thinking in this emerging area.”

– Matt Jones, Interaction Design Director, Google Creative Lab

Reports

UX and service design for connected productsIoTUK UX and Service Design for Connected Products Report (June 2018, free, no registration required)

Powered by the Digital Catapult and Future Cities Catapult, IoTUK is a programme of activities that seeks to advance the UK’s global leadership in the Internet of Things (IoT) and increase the adoption of high quality IoT technologies and services throughout businesses and the public sector. Claire was commissioned to write a report on UX and service design for small-medium sized enterprises developing IoT products, focusing on practical guidance and highlighting effective UK case studies.

“An amazing resource… brilliantly written.”

-Jon Marshall, Pentagram (formerly of Map Project Office)

Claire also recently published a short blog post for Method: 5 questions for connected product UX. This covers some of the same topics.(could screen grab the top of the page – from Medium logo down to the masthead image, to illustrate this).

 

O’Reilly Report, UX Design for the Internet of Things: why it’s more than UI and industrial design (2015, free, registration required).

This report, written as a teaser promotion for Designing Connected Products, introduces a framework for understanding the UX of consumer IoT products, from UI and industrial design, through interusability (distributed UX) and conceptual models, to productisation, business models and technology/platform enablers.
