In the lead up to the upcoming Beijing Design Week, Mobile Monday (MoMo) Beijing yesterday presented an event titled “When Technology Meets Design, it’s Life”. Although for many of the tech geeks out there, awesome technology and sophisticated algorithms are cool, but the reality is, unless you can successfully give the market something usable, it won’t sell. This means giving customers a seamless and magical user experience. The most obvious example of great product design and hence a hot selling product is of course Apple. MoMo believes that well designed technology enhances your life.

Imagine A Day Made of Glass

Opening the talks, Orange Labs and the official organizer of MoMo, presented what the future will look like with “A Day Made of Glass”. For example, from the moment you wake up and brush your teeth in the mirror you can be checking your email and weather to see what you should prepare to wear for the day. When your kids arrive home, they can post their latest digital photos on the fridge and manipulate them. When at a business meeting, instead of taking an iPad around, you can just take a roll-up screen, lay it on the table and use your fingers to run through your 3D models.
