Portal to Paradise with AR

Marriott is a good use case for augmented reality. With the app you can ‘walk’ through the rooms as a tool to enable better experience. Maybe this will kill travel sites slideshows like the one you can find at tui.se. A slideshow with 34 images could be replaced with one AR experience.

Great designer spots problem

In this Ted Talk from 2015 with Tony Fadell the guy behind the Nest Thermostat and the iPod, he shares with us what helps him stay curious. Today’s designer should not purely solve problems, they should be a better observer of the world around them and spot problems. This skill is crucial.

A book we love

Conversational design is a hot topic. This latest book from the ‘A Book Apart’ range is a great weekend read about how we make digital systems feel less robotic and more real? No fluff nor buzzwords just a good read.
