“Facilitation design is about throwing yourself into fields that you have never seen or experienced before.” (Simon Gough) To explore the Internet of Things one can read, watch Ted-talks and go to meet the developers. I did that by going to a MeetUp at Everything about the Web of Things. Where they went beyond all the ethical questions we had asked ourselves being designers. Or maybe they didn’t get there yet… In the picture you see Srdjan Krčo who explained his product TagitSmart! that has not only a journey captured in a QR-code, also a verification is printed in the code with special ink that show wether a product that should have been in a frozen area has been there, or not.
What I truly scared me is that at this moment all our IoT devices and apps are connected to one action, soon all our measured data will go into a cloud and from there be send to all devices that can make use of it. Just imagine what that means!
