Telepresence Design Revolution

The future of telepresence sits at a hybrid intersection of robotics, consumer electronics, medical devices, and even aerospace and housewares -- and the primary driver behind this explosion is design. Unexamined individual needs are revealing a new approach to effective and connected care -- with devices as the delivery mechanism but not the complete experience that's now required -- the emotional presence of a device in a space. The art and craft of this is to design to the "less obvious" to make it a richer experience -- for doctors, patients, technicians and families. Drawing on current client work with developing a robotics telepresence interface for healthcare, as well as consumer health related applications including mobile health gaming and diabetes management mobile tools, Meyer will present emerging best practices and insights into designing devices, software and experiences in light of the need for them to relate and communicate with people in a new way over distance.
