Chapter 15. The Future > New Technologies

New Technologies

As the information age progresses, the usability field will encounter new challenges. There will be a wave of wearable information appliances, including those that are physically embedded in users (under the skin or in a tooth). Information technology will be applied to new domains and user populations. Each of these domains will present new and interesting challenges. While usability professionals will continue to use the same basic methods and insights, they will have to master some challenging issues.

The usability field will also speed the progress of technology. No longer will we create new offerings only to have them rejected as impractical and awkward. Usability work will soon smooth the introduction of new ideas.
