The best-selling author of "The Design of Everyday Things" casts his critical eye on the new dawn of "smart" technology, from smooth-talking GPS systems to cantankerous refrigerators. This is a consumer-oriented look at the promise and perils of the smart objects of the future, and a cautionary tale for designers of these objects - many of which are already in use or development. Don Norman, a popular design consultant to car manufacturers, computer companies and other industrial and design outfits, has seen the future and is worried. He points out what's going wrong with the wave of products just coming on the market and some that are on drawing boards everywhere - from "smart" cars and homes that seek to anticipate a user's every need, to the latest automatic navigational systems. Norman offers a theory of natural human-machine interaction that can be put into practice by the engineers and industrial designers of tomorrow's thinking machines. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Taschenbuch
I have always been a big fan of good design, but have never really had an opportunity to read much about it from those who make design their living. Recently, thanks to some advanced prototyping and manufacturing tools that have become widely accessible, I’ve been dabbling into design and have made a few of my own gadgets. At the same time I came across this book in the local public library, and thought it would be a good reading material to go with my fledgling design hobby. However, the book turned into a bit of a disappointment.

This book is neither an introduction to the design concepts and techniques, nor a wide-ranging look at the future of design. It comes closer to the latter paradigm, but the narrowness of its subjects and the shallowness of approach don’t lend themselves easily to the deeply thoughtful look at the design of the future things. The book takes a closer look at the issues that pertain to the design of a few interesting “futuristic” technologies (self-driving cars in particular feature prominently), and presents the case to the reader that what we would want out of these technologies may in fact not be either the safest or the best designed solution when it comes to their implementations. The book offers a few insightful observations, and a short checklist of good design principles. Many of these are pretty good overall, but the brunt of their points could have been summarized into an essay that is perhaps a third of the size of this, already very thin, book.

If you are looking for some casual musings by an authority on the subject of design, then this book might be for you. Otherwise you may want to read something that is a bit more technical and systematic. From what I’ve heard about it, The Design of Everyday Things might be a much better read on this subject. I’ll try to check it out at some point in the future.

Wer sich dafür interessiert, wie man Dinge so konzipiert, dass sie ihre Nutzer verärgern oder gar gefährden, der ist mit diesem Buch gut beraten. Und wer sich intelligent unterhalten lassen will mit Geschichten aus dem täglichen Leben (oder dem, wie wir es in 10 Jahren führen werden), der kann hier auch nichts falsch machen.

Ob man Usability-Profi ist oder das Thema nur spannend findet, wie die Kommunikation zwischen Mensch und Maschine funktioniert (oder eben nicht) – jeder wird dieses Buch mit Freue lesen. Bahnbrechende Erkenntnisse darf man sich nicht erwarten, aber einige schöne Geschichten und etliche Denkanstöße.

Good but not Great 5. Januar 2008
Von Rob S. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
An interesting read. Ranks in this order:

(1) Design of Everyday Things
(2) Emotional Design
(distant 3rd) Design of Future Things

It wasn't "bad" it simply wasn't as interesting as the others. Whereas at the end of (1) and (2) I felt enlightened - that Norman was breaking new ground. At the end of Future Things I felt he had spent much of the time repeating himself, that the book could have been half the length.

Good book, but I would skip.

Decent, not essential 21. November 2007
Von Andrew Otwell - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Though the title's similar, this is no Design of Everyday Things. This book's very strongly focussed on design ideas for automobile automation, smart cruise control and the like, which gets a little tedious. Surprisingly, Norman also barely explores transportation possibilities beyond the car, and there's no discussion at all of sustainability, how cities and transportation habits are changing, or really any context at all. I guess Norman sees a one-man, one-exhaust pipe future for us.

In other ways, the book feels very much like the product of the last generation of attitudes about technology: there's basically no discussion of the web, or really anything about products that might have both online and physical manifestations. There's certainly some interesting stuff about how people adapt to increasing automation and lack of control in their cars or homes, but no essential insights nor much about the implications of generalized ambient computing and automation, something Adam Greenfield deals with very thoughtfully in Everyware.

Okay, but no Design of Everyday Things 17. Dezember 2007
Von Craig Ogg - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Norman's book Design of Everyday Things had a profound effect both on the way I perceive the world and how I design. I have bought every consumer book he has written since then, and have always come away disappointed.

I am giving this book only 3 stars because I felt it became repetitive after a while, having covered the points adequately in the first half of the book. Not up to the quality I expect of Norman.

Great author, but could have been a better book 26. Oktober 2010
Von Rob Wilcox - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The Design of Future things could have been a much better book, but it has its value.

Norman has a distinguished career as engineer, cognitive scientist and champion for good design before it was fashionable. The book's weakness is its trade book focus on the general reader. It needs to be more engaging and expand beyond a focus on automobile and home automation R&D laboratories.

Its value are proposed principles for human-intelligent machine interaction: provide rich natural and continuous signals; be predictable; provide a good conceptual model; understandable output; and exploit natural mappings. Given the immaturity of the field, these are a very rough starting point. They will be replaced or evolved as broad real experience with intelligent machines evolves.

More important are the recommended readings: suggestions on important technical books and researchers on intelligent machine topics.

Norman's trade book philosophy omits conventional footnotes, though a page linked notes section allows limited references for the reader to go deeper.

A book copyright 2007 would have been written in 2006-6, but missing completely are developments in mobile, gaming, simulation, search, language translation, health care; and the potential of network-backed intelligence in the cloud. Discussion of intelligent social network interaction systems, or social network driven intelligence are absent. Norman also omits the impact of generational adoption and the signaling theory value of technology adoption by individuals.

The book could have omitted science fiction-style dialogs between fictional humans and Norman's fictional future machines. A better approach would have been to critique the interactions in popular film, with online film clip references. A more important focus could have been lessons from the evolution of artificial intelligence research and its disappointments; and ethnographic studies of current early intelligent systems, across cultures. We are sure to see unexpected variety in design theory across developers and academics in diverse world cultures.

Nonetheless, we look forward to the author's next significant book.

Not Impressed 20. April 2008
Von Brian C. Clark - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Much of the book reiterates and repeats the same points over and
over again about communication between machines and man but I found
that it was very limited in scope. From what I have read in technology
advances I am forced to conclude that this author has not done adequate
research to write what the title suggest which is a much wider scope than what is written within its chapters. A more correct title would be
"The communication between man and machine" or "Communication between
future home appliances, cars and furniture with man". It patronizes
computers as hardly being suitable candidates for future sentience.

Given that we have had millions of years to evolve I hardly think
that this could be concluded from only about 60 years of computer
technology...certainly in light of the fact that all of NASA's expensive computers in the 1960's Apollo era filling out an entire room does not approach the computing power of even a single laptop computer today.

In general buying a book about future technology is not as informative as
reading about articles on a daily or weekly basis because the shear
breadth of the subject does not do well in book form where it quickly
becomes outdated. If you are reading about history, language an
autobiography and so on you are more likely to be adequately informed
because it is not an evolving topic and only a few new things get discovered over the years to amend to what you already know. On the
other hand if you are reading about PAST technology such as the works
of Tesla and his D.C. motors then you are on a topic which fits into
history which is adequately constrained in its breadth and is not
evolving unless you believe Tesla is somehow alive like Elvis and is still inventing new machines that no one can can guess at.
