Exploring the physical web

Today’s ‘smart devices’ are a product of the technology and mental models of our past. From a connected lightbulb to a robot vacuum, using most of these devices requires a native app. This in turn greatly limits their contexts of use. Can we really expect users to download an app to interact with a random ’thing’ they encounter at the mall, a space they explore for an hour at the museum, or a city they will only visit for a day? What devices could we build, what ‘smart’ environments could we enable if users could simply discover, “walk up and use”(and then if needed, abandon) these objects and environments as they do a web site?

Go through the above slide to explore some of the exciting possibilities of the Physical Web by Stephanie Rieger

Imagining the Physical Web

“Some people say the web is dying, but I believe it’s just getting started. And what will kick it into overdrive is the Physical Web: the ability to discover, engage, and interact with smart devices (or that “dumb” tree over there) using nothing more than a browser.” – Stephanie Rieger

Google Gesture

“For some people, sign language a must. But most people don’t understand sign language, which means a lot of interesting conversations never take place. How can we help, Google bridge the gap between those who use sign language and those who don’t?”


Default Picture

Recently i was working on default pictures or some people say ghost image for a Mobile application. I tried different variations of icons, flat colour, doodles etc. Somehow i was not satisfied with it, at many times generic grey profile picture looks boring and dull.
So finally i design these abstract patterns in combination of first initial of the name to make it personal which looks interesting and the same time it creates a colour, personality and vibrancy.

Let me know what you think?

Precious moments

Sometimes in the race of life we often forget beautiful moments around us, we need to live and enjoy everyday you do or love to do.
