Connected Thinking inserts what we call “Connected Awareness,” which is essentially looking at the layers of information produced by today’s connected world. This information can include - but is definitely not limited to - things such as personal preferences, location, time of day, network connectivity, and more. Connected Thinking introduces ways to make a product function at a very personal level for the user; to evolve and change for the user based on the user’s state; and follow the user fluidly across multiple devices and screens.
Fundamentally, Design Thinking proved to be a successful process for solitary, isolated, hard goods and products. Connected Thinking will take product design into a brave new world where products will have absolutely no form factor. Tomorrow your phone and your favorite apps will not live on a Samsung or an iPhone but will live on your chair, your desk, your wall, your shirt and will follow you, and evolve for you. The products of tomorrow need to be built with a full understanding of Connected Thinking.
