The launch of the latest Apple Watch in September was accompanied with the customary buzz that comes with every new Apple gadget. What really caught my eye and  generated extra curiosity this time was the watch’s new fall detection feature, aimed at both senior citizens and the general public. One news outlet even enlisted a professional stunt double to demonstrate that fall detection ability.

Imagine if you were to visualize all of humanity’s connections. It’s a nearly impossible challenge, and two dimensional graphs certainly wouldn’t be up to the task. Even a network graph, a type of visualization that maps out connections in a network, isn’t up to such a large-scale project–since it can’t show how relationships change over time.

If you’re looking for a more unique place to lay your head on your next trip to London, look no further than the Boathouse London, a stylish floating hotel docked on a city canal. Created in partnership with home design brand Made, this bespoke botel and event space on the water was fashioned as “an industrial-style barge turned contemporary bolthole” with help from interior designer Katie Hanton. Kitted out in Scandinavian-inspired style, the chic getaway comes with customizable experiences, from a boat driver who can steer you around the canals to a special dinner prepared by a local chef.

There is the intangible part of design where, if you're designing a bar/restaurant interior for instance, you are creating a vibe by choosing colors and materials. But the back of the house requires concrete numbers-based design: Can the petite bartender realistically carry the requisite amount of beer cases from the storeroom to the front? When the boxes of vegetables come off of the truck, what should the maximum distance to the cooler be to ensure efficient unloading? Can kegs be stored in the basement and muscled up the stairs, or will that be a back-breaker?

In a recent Fast Company essay, human-centered design expert Don Norman argues that poorly designed technology drives many of the challenges of our overcomplicated lives. Despite the merits of several of his arguments, I disagree with the premise. It’s a misleading oversimplication of our relationship to technology — and it can actually lead to bad design.

Artist Oliver Jeffers is now 6 years into The Dipped Painting Project, an elaborated and multi-faceted exploration of the effect of time on one’s memory (we previously featured a video about the project here). Evolving across various countries and venues, the collection of paintings, performances and interviews generated over a proposed ten-year period will ultimately appear in the form of a feature length film and retrospective.

Customers, as we all know, are a fickle bunch. Considering how customer loyalty is far from abundant these days, there are many ways to lose a customer, but the biggest turn-off for today’s consumers is an experience in which friction isn’t kept to a minimum. On some level, we’ve known that for years, right? The marketplaces that are winning loyalty from today’s consumers are doing it by focusing on reducing customer friction points.
