Hello and welcome! This is the Design Gold podcast. A podcast about all things design and technology, and how we can create better experiences and the pitfall of things not considered or overlooked.
A Look Back at CES 2020
This is going to be a long one. Lots of exciting things happened at CES 2020 and on this episode Jonathan and I talk about several different highlights and what’s shifting at the show, what all these technology changes mean for the world of consumer tech and where design fits in to the picture.
In this episode we discuss the various ways video has changed over the years, specifically how we consume it. Should the burden for more immersive video experiences be put on the viewer or the creators? Who should act as the author to the media?
Why does everything need an app?!?!
Why is it that everything need an app from toasters to skateboards? In this episode we discuss the ramifications of product organizations relying on companion apps and how that effects the user experience of their hardware product. How can we build companion apps that build on top of the already great experience of the product?
Door Handles: Push it, Twist it, Pull it
In this first episode of the Design Gold podcast, we discuss doors, door handles and why doors are so difficult to sort out. Are they push, pull, slide or something else?
How do we build trust with our users and keep it? Can we make authentication into systems seamless and still secure? And more broadly what is security? Will technology solve all our security problems or does it require people to intervene? Lots of questions and hopefully lots of insights :P
