"the outcome was a bunch of stuff... a lot of advice for designers on how to get the product from concept to actual manufacturing. There were a bunch of deisgn ideas presented as well which was fascinating. And vendors talking to desingers about good design for manufacturing strategies. Those were my key takeaways."

Hailey, thanks for the clarification. So it's a combined effort between vendors and designers.

Did not quite get the message with data vs experience. Most of the time user data give insight about the user experience as users might not provide a quantitative measure for designers.

"I think the main goal of DoT is to help accelerate the design and business of wearable technologies, 3D printing etc..."

Hospice, it may not limited to design itself, how to go further for good designs, tools available for easiness etc.

"I agree - not really sure what DoT encompasses. I'd like to see the concept embrace designing for 3D printing technology - I think that conventional design software may need to go through a metamorphasis to further enable 3D printing."

Eldredge, I think 3D is so common with most of the industries. We have to formulate the printing technology for 4D and 5D.

"DoT was a great new conference that had its first year last week in San Francisco. It brought designers from all over to talk about the challenges of electronics product design today. It was fascinating and a lot of fun!"

Hailey, what's was the outcome of that conference. Any new method or pattern of design?

3D printing has the potential to make prototyping easier. It is already redefining the way people think about design.

@prabhakar - Sometimes the issue of manufacturing a prototype is a major roadblock to progress, or to the validation of an idea. I can certainly see how 3D printing hwlps to make that task easier, and therfore progress more rapid.
