The Design of Future Things

By Peshala

Have you ever imagined a car reacting to the way you drive?
It gets scared, seats gets straighten, seat belts get tighten and so on and so forth when it realizes that you are driving recklessly.
This was one of the ideas presented by Professor Donald Norman in his book named "Design of future things".

Donald Arthur Norman is a professor emeritus of cognitive science at University of California, San Diego and a Professor of Computer Science at Northwestern University, where he also co-directs the Segal Design Institute.
In The Design of Future Things, Donald A. Norman presents a revealing examination of smart technology, while exploring the links between design and human psychology. Realizing the importance of knowing future technical trends, we at Hashimoto laboratory discussed immensely on the content of this book at our regular lab meetings.
The Design of Future

Things is a must-read for anyone interested in the dawn of a new era in technology.
The following video provides a good background to this book and his ideas and we highly recommend that you have a look at it.
