Dries is a next generation alchemist, moving back and forth between the design and research field. He leads all things research at the creative agency Studio Dott in Antwerp, Belgium. He is interested in the way people use and adapt technology in their day to day context, and how this can be an inspiration towards more humane & meaningful network connected products.

Designing Internet of Things products and services can be way more complex than traditional product or UX design. And with a next generation of products, comes a next generation of design tools: tools that help you understand the possibilities and overcome challenges related to IoT. Dries de Roeck (Studio Dott, BE) and Ricardo Brito (Futurice, DE) have developed novel design tools (IoT Service Kit / Know Cards Ideation Pack) navigate the complexity of IoT and help you to design connected products. During these workshops they’ll share their latest tools and processes.
This is a hands-on workshop accessible to everyone, no domain knowledge required.
