Episode Summary

In 1980, Bill Gates famously wanted a computer on every desk and in every home. Now perhaps Microsoft would like a fitness band on every wrist and all your health data in the cloud.

With the release of its Health platform and fitness band into the already crowded fray, Microsoft is(again)staking a claim to your quantified self data, along with competitors Apple and Google. The battle for your body’s health data has just begun.

On another front, the war for your living room is heating up, with Google Play now on Roku and the Amazon Fire TV stick premiering for a mere $19. Perhaps most significantly, even Walmart is getting in the game, with their Vudu spark streaming service.

In this episode of the Digital Life, we discuss the future of design for ecosystems — be it your body, your living room, your car or even your bathroom — as designers begin to consider how digital and physical products come together with the Internet of Things.

The Programmable World

October 10, 2013          

Episode Summary

Whether we notice it or not, we’re surrounded by machines and sensors. Our world is networked and made of code. We need new skills and perspectives to take charge of the programmable world we’ve built. Because if we don’t learn to program the world we want, it may very well program us. In this episode of The Digital Life, we discuss the “Programmable World” with Matt Nish-Lapidus, Design Director at Normative.
