IoT Lab Portland May 2014

The IoT Lab in Portland was a great success. At the end of the second day we had 4 teams (HEYYO, Snackchat, Icebreakr and Beacon) presenting their IoT-enabled solutions.  Thanks to all participants, and people involved to make this event a success.

At the following WebVisions conference Claro Research Director Abby Margolis gave a well received and recognized talk  about  how to apply a people-centred approach to Data and the Internet of Things download.

A new post and video (incl. the IoT Lab Portland) will be published after our upcoming IoT Lab iBarcelona (17th – 18th June). 

Two days to design and prototype a new Internet of Things (IoT) service. We are excited to announce two IoT Labs in collaboration with WebVisions, in Portland (5th – 6th May) and Barcelona (17th – 18th June). The IoT Lab is a two day workshop where teams of designers, developers, makers and strategists will explore the various opportunities around connected devices We will ideate, create and build new IoT products and services focused on real human needs. Check the results of last year’s IoT Lab in Chicago here.

Two days to design and prototype a new Internet of Things (IoT) service. We are excited to announce two IoT Labs in collaboration with WebVisions, in Portland (5th – 6th May) and Barcelona (17th – 18th June). The IoT Lab is a two day workshop where teams of designers, developers, makers and strategists will explore the various opportunities around connected devices We will ideate, create and build new IoT products and services focused on real human needs. Check the results of last year’s IoT Lab in Chicago here.

It is a hands-on masterclass and workshop.
 The Portland IoT Lab is two days of intensive problem-solving and prototyping. It will start with coffee and introductions at 8:30am on Monday 5th May at the Pacific Northwest College of Art. We’ll share Claro’s perspective of the IoT, then dive straight into a full two days of brainstorming, designing and prototyping new IoT product and service concepts. Claro will provide tools and methods designed especially for innovating in this space and teams will finish with a well-defined service, product and business model and potentially new collaborators and friends to bring it to life.

Get in the mix…When you are building something that crosses both peoples’ digital and physical lives you need a team of people that think differently from each other. This is why we are ensuring the workshop will have an even distribution of designers, developers, strategists, and makers. Each team can work in smaller groups to make sure each part of the concept is developed – from the product design to the hardware and software to the UX, business model and delivery to the customer.

Come and join us!
