Why Bluetooth Low Energy is the Best Solution for Wearables, Sensors, and Beacons | MbientLab

Why Bluetooth Low Energy is the Best Solution for Wearables, Sensors, and Beacons | MbientLab | Communication design | Scoop.it

As you may know, the MetaWear platform is a wearable, sensor, and beacon development board that uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE) for wireless communication. We decided to use BTLE over other protocols such as Bluetooth Classic, WiFi, and WiFi Direct because BTLE:

  • Has lower power consumption.
    • Can be powered by a coin cell battery
    • Battery can last for months or even years depending on use case
  • Is a less complex protocol.
  • Costs less to implement (unit costs, layout, firmware, etc.).

While the other protocols offer some nice pros, namely higher data throughput and farther range, we believed in the end, BTLE is the best choice for wearables, sensors, and beacons. Now, you may be thinking that it is silly to sacrifice superior data throughput and range however, none of the aforementioned use cases justified trading the power, complexity, and cost benefits of BTLE.

Magnetic Reconnection Directly Observed for First Time

Magnetic Reconnection Directly Observed for First Time | Communication design | Scoop.it

 

Magnetic reconnection is one of the prime drivers of space radiation and a key factor in the quest to learn more about our space environment and protect our spacecraft and astronauts. The effects of this sudden release of particles and energy - such as giant eruptions on the sun or radiation storms in near-Earth space - have been observed throughout the solar system and beyond.

Design thinking in the corporate DNA

Design thinking in the corporate DNA | Communication design | Scoop.it
By Suzanne Pellican

We started our journey to bring design thinking into Intuit more than eight years ago. We call it Design for Delight (D4D) — because it’s not about the process; it’s about exceeding the expectations of our customers in ways they couldn’t imagine. We realized that not everyone had the necessary innovation skills. Most of our employees hadn’t been trained, in school or at other jobs, to solve problems with design thinking. So, we needed to build the capability into all 8,000 employees to spur on innovation and ensure we create amazing experiences for our customers.

Student’s Faucet Design Saves Water By Swirling It Into Beautiful Patterns

Student’s Faucet Design Saves Water By Swirling It Into Beautiful Patterns | Communication design | Scoop.it

Simin Qiu, the creator and designer of this concept designed the faucet such that it passes water via a double turbine .The latter rotates as the water courses through it thus bring about a lattice of elaborate and beautiful jets of water. Less water is used to form this intricate swirls, in fact it reduces the flow of water by 15%.This means that less water is utilized at any point in time, thus saving you water. Three nozzles are available all creating different water swirl patterns. The  Design concept award in 2014 was awarded to Qiu for this concept. In order to retain the sleek and elegant design, the operation of this faucet is carried out with a simple touch button at the top.

In the last 15 years, design education has dramatically changed. Generally speaking, at the beginning of 2000s, design education was pretty much the job of art and design schools, and mostly had a learning-by-doing approach, involving hands-on studio-based assignments. It was rare to find a design course heavy on "lecture" format classes, unpacking the design process, or…

Milton Glaser: we talk drawing, ethics, Shakespeare and Trump with the graphic design legend

Milton Glaser: we talk drawing, ethics, Shakespeare and Trump with the graphic design legend | Communication design | Scoop.it

Milton Glaser is ready to talk ethics. It’s not the first time, either. Ours is one of a few recent interviews with the graphic designer and creator of the _I ❤ NY_ logo, in which he addresses some of the moral demands of his trade – questions of whether graphic design ought to compromise its integrity for the sake of meeting a client’s demands. On the subject of advertisers and the designers who work for them, Glaser is clear. “Your obligation is to the client, and not necessarily the public. In some cases, you’re encouraging people to buy things that they don’t need, or encouraging them to move in a direction that does not serve them. Frequently in advertising – and PR and journalism as well - we have to persuade people to do things that we don’t really believe in and that they don’t really believe in. Should you participate in something that encourages people to do something that is not good for them? I consider that a core question for journalists and practitioners of graphic art, but it’s too frequently overlooked because it is too painful to answer."
