The Internet of Things (IoT)

This “smart device” progress is continually merging with products previously assumed analog or completely physical in operation. Force-4 has developed numerous smart-enabled devices as well as pioneered ways to enable research with data-gathering devices. Sometimes called “voice-of-the-product”, this approach can enable a more potent and less adulterated understanding of human behavior versus other research techniques.

Connected devices and the internet of things are just catchphrases to most of the general population, with much of the public not showing interest in ways that build desired demand. The Data from IoT has obvious self-serving benefits for brands receiving unfiltered information on their users, but for the users, the benefits are less clear as privacy compromises of connected devices become more apparent. The rarer and more potent ingredient in connected technology will be how devices create connections to individual psyches, lifestyle needs, and social importance. This will result in new levels of convenience and user experiences that are immersive and intuitive in generating meaning and purpose in human life.
