As somebody who’s interested in design, I’m like totally interested in when practicality meet new ideas and ways of approaching something old. Does that make sense? Like when something has always been done one way is infused with something modern to make something totally new.
Or, when something New Uses something olds to make itself effective. That’s the kind of thing that I’m totally interested in design, but more and more I’m starting to see it in other elements of life. That make sense? Like, I want to start looking more for the things that I appreciate about design in things that aren’t designed.
By doing that, I think I’ll be able to take ideas for design from things that also are not designed. Like, if I see a great painting it might help me design an awesome building. Or vice versa. Because I don’t really know what I want to do it with this time, I just know that I am a person who is all about images.
However, where I’m finding a lot of inspiration these days is technology, I went and saw my boyfriends nephew the other day. Oh my God, he is just the most special little thing. However, I can’t like turn my student brain off, so I just saw something that totally inspired me. My boyfriend’s sister and her husband had this baby monitor that used technology in a really exciting way. It was a WiFi baby monitor which I think is a great idea, and it streams the feed from like a pretty good camera, into an app database. So basically you can load this app on like your smartphone or iPad and check in on how your baby is doing on a live camera feed.
Isn’t that just sort of incredible? The fact that you can tune in on an app of all things. App design is also a really interesting field, and I was really pleased with the app. I explain to them that I am a student of design in that I’m interested now that these kind of things and they thought it was pretty cool.
I went on to the app and I couldn’t help but notice that the interface is really professionally prepared and that this must be a really high-end product. I don’t think it will be long before all baby monitors are employed Wi-Fi, everything else is getting left behind in the dust. Though, it’s cool to see such an old idea done in such a new way. That’s what I’m all about.
