Learning from what could go wrong with stalk the stock, here are a few design guidelines to make the internet of things concept a more secure and trustable system:
1. Ambient objects should be designed with privacy kept in mind.
2. Authentication forms using biometric data should preferably be carried out locally.
3. Although collection of data from users may seem very lucrative, designers have to be mindful of what is acceptable and what is not. Is it going to put the user in trouble/discomfort/a compromising situation?
4. With connected devices building an additional barrier layer between the user and reality, it becomes exceedingly important for companies to strengthen their ethics and increase transparency to the fullest extent possible.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
