Breaking smartphone addiction: 10 Designs to save us from electronic enslavement

I read a pretty scary statistic online, which outlines that the average person stares at their smartphone screen for a minimum of 3 hours a day. In fact, that number went from 0.3 hours to 3.3 hours between 2008 and 2017. Today, it’s anywhere between 4-6 hours, which is anywhere around 30% of the time we spend awake. That’s 30% of our waking life spent staring at pixels. Mike Elgan points out that if we spent that time reading books, we could literally read upward of 200 books PER YEAR.So how ex...

Still Confused about Cryptocurrency? This Tactile Toy Has You Covered

"Most young children first encounter digital money in video games, where they can acquire coins to spend at will in the game environment," Filippo Yacob says. "There's no real accountability; there's no real learning. So they associate digital money with money that isn't real."But Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies are quickly becoming some of the realest elements of 21st-century financial literacy. As an inventor and a dad, Yacob worries that parents—many of them confused about block...

Leica's FOTOS App: When Iconic Industrial Design Heritage Meets The Mobile Age

As your typical designer type who occasionally likes to dabble in a bit of photography, it's always surprised and, frankly frustrated me just how poor the connectivity experiences of leading camera brands can be. Stumping up the cash for a high-end DSLR, you'd expect that these kinds of smart features would be meticulously thought through. All too often though, the simple act of getting your photos from your camera to your various devices can be clunky, convoluted and unreliable, performed with ...

How to Successfully Outsource Development Work

This article was contributed by Daniel Boterhoven. As more and more businesses make the move into the online domain, there is an increasing demand for cost effective web and mobile app development services. A quality developer must spend hundreds if not thousands of hours honing in their skills and this often means they are in short supply. This is why it is natural that the cost of hiring local coders is outside the budget of many businesses and so outsourcing becomes the best option. But like ...

Browser Extension That Pauses Video When You Look Away, Yea or Nay?

I consume a lot of video for work. My viewing is frequently interrupted by phone calls, dogs, delivery people hitting the buzzer, etc. Each time this happens I reflexively hit the spacebar to pause the video--and instead the browser window scrolls down half a screen while the video continues to play.German developer Mattias Hemmingsson has a workaround--but one that I'd never consider using. By tapping into the Chrome browser's FaceDetector API (application programming interface), Hemmingsson ha...

HaloEffect Offers a Streamlined Hands-Free Lifestyle for Smartphone Addicts

I generally keep my phone within a 15ft radius of my body at all times, and I don't think I'm the only one. When you think about it, though, smartphone mounts haven't exactly been updated to consider the wide variety of tasks we now rely on our phones for. The most basic example: When we have a daily Skype meeting here in the office, people using their phones create makeshift props so we can see eye-to-eye instead of eye-to-nostril. Maybe that's just the designer in all of us coming out, but it ...

Syria's First-Ever Oscar Contender Is Actually Banned In Syria

When Aleppo-born director Sam Kadi was making the documentary Little Gandhi, it was too dangerous for him to return to Syria from abroad, so he directed his cameramen via Skype as they tried to avoid sniper fire. And he says that if the film were shown inside Syria now, he would be executed.

Desk space

I’ve worked from home since 2005, and while the home’s changed six or seven times, it’s definitely been easier to focus when the desk’s clean. There’s some standard equipment that tends to stick around, though. BenQ PD3200u For years I used a 27″ iMac as my main screen, but the glare off the glass wasn’t great, and I’d always be increasing/decreasing the screen brightness depending on how sunny it was. The matt display of BenQ’s 32″ 4K monitor gets rid of that problem. It’s a lot easier...

Design Experience That Matters: What to Do When FDA Approval Doesn't Mean Equipment is Safe

Summary Does United States FDA regulatory approval mean a medical device is safe and effective in low resource settings? The short answer is no. In developing countries, 95% of western medical equipment is broken within 5 years. In fact, only 30% of this donated equipment is ever even turned on. To enable Firefly phototherapy to work well in remote hospitals, we had to develop a novel cooling solution and a more robust electrical system that exceed FDA requirements.

10 tactics for better interaction when the webinar audience is “listen only”

Many webinar and webcast softwares default to participants joining in “listen only” mode, and this makes sense – controlling audio is a critical part of managing a great virtual event, and a presentation is a different communication style than a conversation (like in a meeting). Sometimes, too, live audio interaction isn’t either possible or preferable, but it doesn’t mean that interaction needs to be missing or even wait until the end. If your objective is to raise the engagement quotient of y...
