Praise for Designing for Emerging Technologies

For those interested in tech innovation and the future practice of design, who are accepting of complexity and dissonant ideas, and never completely satisfied with the status quo, this book is a revelation.


In a world of too many lagging indicators, it’s too rare a pleasure to find a book like Designing for Emerging Technologies: something that’s actually skating toward where the puck is going to be, instead of where it’s been.

Jonathan Follett has curated a collection of viewpoints that ought to be considered, appreciated, and reflected in the work of everyone designing next-generation devices and applications: the things that will make us say, ten years from now, ‘How did we ever get along without that?’
