The design of future things

By: Norman, Donald A.
Publisher: New York Basic Books 2007Description: viii, 231 p.ISBN: 9780465002276.Subject(s): Design | Industrial - Psychological aspects | Human engineeringDDC classification: 745.2 Summary: In this long-awaited follow-up to The Design of Everyday Things, he points out what's going wrong with the wave of products just coming on the market and some that are on drawing boards everywhere-from smart cars and homes that seek to anticipate a user's every need, to the latest automatic navigational systems. Norman builds on this critique to offer a consumer-oriented theory of natural human-machine interaction that can be put into practice by the engineers and industrial designers of tomorrow's thinking machines. This is a consumer-oriented look at the perils and promise of the smart objects of the future, and a cautionary tale for designers of these objects-many of which are already in use or development.
