Contextual Augmented Reality Interfaces for the Internet of Things
In the year 2019, 833 million smart home devices were shipped worldwide - an increase of nearly 27% over the previous year. These products range from conventional appliances like lights, refrigerators, and televisions to more niche items like breadmakers and connected cradles.
With the ever-increasing sprawl of the IoT landscape, it seemed only logical that we begin to visualize and manipulate these devices in a singular, contextual, spatial interface. I worked with Ramin Firoozye to craft a UI prototype for what his ARIoT concept would look like in practice. The results of which were revealed at AWS Reinvent 2019.
Components of the design system:
- Device Branding
- Device Iconography
- Device Name
- Controllable Parameter Information
The initial concept of a connected home was also extended to agriculture technology.
