Is Home Automation the Next UX Frontier?

If there is one thing that UX and UI designers should take away from this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, it is that the next big thing is home automation, and we better be ready for it.

From dishwashers with digital interfaces to smartphone apps that can manage an entire home heating and cooling system, this shift in home appliances means that these new digital interfaces will need just as much TLC as a new web app.

These transitions present some incredible opportunities but also plenty of challenges. The team at ÄKTA sat down to discuss the matter. Here are both the opportunities and the challenges that will come with home automation.

Breakdown of Current Silos

We imagine that this shift will create a breakdown of silos. We will no longer see "product design" and "digital UX” as two different pieces of the building process. Rather, we will start to focus on a more holistic user experience that covers everything from the physical product to the digital interface.

Because of this breakdown, cross-system and cross-platform areas of expertise will become invaluable. Take for example a smart washer by LG that we spotted at CES 2013. A repairperson brought in to fix this machine will now need to know how to fix network systems in addition to plumbing systems.

Best Buy Reports $377 Million Net Loss in Q4, Schulze Makes No Buyout Offer

It is unfortunately safe to say that Best Buy has seen better days. Announcing their plan to let go of 400 employees from their headquarters on Tuesday, the big blue electronics supplier released another bit of bad news on Friday — their earnings for the 2012 fourth quarter.

According to an official release, Best Buy announced a net loss of $377 million on revenues of $16.7 billion in Q4, against an analyst expectation of $16.29 billion. CEO Hubert Joly commented on the profit decrease, stating that domestic sales offset the company’s failures overseas. However, cutting expenses with job cuts helped to narrow the Q4 losses towards the end of the quarter.

Its loss totaled something like $409 million or $1.21 per BBT share for three months before February, compared to a loss o $1.82 billion or $5.17 per share the year prior.

How high can we go - 4K UHD

There may come a time when 4K might become the default standard for our video viewing, but before that happens there will need to be a lot of infrastructure changes. The DCI standard must be used throughout the entire production and delivery chain, and finally the consumer must accept this new resolution.
