Prerequisite knowledge

Familiarity with mobile apps and basic UX principles is strongly recommended.


Greg Nudelman guides participants through using low-fidelity paper prototyping techniques to envision, design, and test an Apple or Android wearable app coupled with a corresponding mobile app.

In small groups, you will create a prototype for your wearable app. Using new hardware and interaction patterns (Force Touch, Glances, etc.), your group will produce a clean wearable interface—consistent with the Apple or Android guidelines—that reflects your app’s unique personality and design a consistent end-to-end experience across wearable and mobile apps, including a perfect notification scheme across multiple devices. You will learn how to test your wearable prototype with customers for less than a cup of coffee, implement lean user feedback into an agile sprint, and inject the focus on customer outcomes into the core of your team or client relationship. By the end of this workshop, you will be able to envision your app participating in the Apple or Android ecosystem (wearable/mobile/car/web).

Bring your ideas, and walk away with wireframes.
