Designers are Experience Architects, says Brian Solis at LeWeb’12

By Aurelien

Last week was held LeWeb’12, likely the largest European event for Internet-related technologies. This year, the theme of the event was Internet of Things (IoT). I enjoyed in particular the inspiring speech from Altimeter Group analyst Brian Solis on how IoT is changing behaviors through experiences. Brian shared several examples from the field of IoT where products go beyond utility by providing experiences that change behaviors. Designing such experiences that include a lot of embedded systems intelligence will be a whole new domain, as Brian stated:

Experience Architecture is all brand new, it’s a blank canvas. It’s something that you [designers, developers...] get to decide. It’s your vision, it’s your purpose, that actually gets us to align behind you.

As he was addressing designers, developers, and entrepreneurs in the room, Brian concluded:

You are not just developing products, services and solutions. You can be an Experience Architect to help me change the way I live my life.

Exploring the Web in 3D

By Oleg

I think that the Web provides an endless opportunity to explore the world of information. So, I’m constantly looking to explore new ways to use 3D to search better and faster for information, be able to differentiate information in 3D, and see better results. Also, you have to admit, 3D is a cool technology, and I’m always finding new ways to use 3D views to present information.

Yesterday, I had the chance to experiment with 3D browsing or search software (I’m not really sure how to classify this software) from Tianamo search beta. Actually, the first impression was from Tianamo Youtube video. I was impressed.

I made few attempts using beta tools  (http://search.tianamo.com) and tried to use my top regular searches for Product Lifecycle Management, 3D CAD, CATIA. I put a few of the results in the pictures below.

I hope that you liked this and would be interested in hearing your feedback. . You can try this interesting tool by yourself by registering on http://search.tianamo.com. I will be watching this, exploring tools and other 3D information, and will continue to post my results on 3D perspectives.
