The Nitty-Gritty

Jan. 8, 2019

Looking Forward to a New Year!

Welcome to 2019! A new year is upon us and many new products and concepts are being showcased in the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES). How might these new concepts affect our work in the future? What ideas can you take and integrate into your own work in some manner? What mental models will these new products create in the minds of our users that will shift how they want to interact with our services?

According to Jeremy Hull, Senior VP of Innovation at iProspect, the tech trends that will be most impactful during 2019 share a few key characteristics [1].

As we look to create new services or improve our existing ones, Mr. Hull suggests asking ourselves these questions:

Taking time to look beyond our own set of services and explore the new and exciting trends in a variety of technologies can open doors to new ideas that will help us better meet our users needs.

For the majority of us that can’t make it out to Las Vegas to attend CES, CNBC provides a preview of a few new products and concepts [2] being showcased this week, from a suitcase that follows you around to a bracelet style device for alerting diabetics to blood sugar issues.
