Meet up with the DATAstudio about ways to involve citizens in the making of their city, during a two day conference on the Internet of Things.

The Internet of Things is here to stay, but we still see that the creation of relevant connected products is not the default. The talk on IoT is often on the data systems and infrastructure, on the new business models. But how do you design smart products that add real value to the user? How do you as a designer use data in a responsible way? During ThingsCon 2016 on 1 and 2 December adventurous designers, whizzkids and IoT pioneers will look for the answers. DATAstudio team members Linda Vlassenrood and Klaas Kuitenbrouwer will discuss ways to involve citizens in the making of their city in a meet up on 2 December. 


ThingsCon is Europe’s leading conference about the future of hardware, connected devices and Internet of Things. Participants from across the world come together for a series of hands-on workshops, intimate sessions and an international line-up of top notch speakers cover everything it takes to grow a hardware product from prototype to scaling business. Speakers for the plenary program are amongst others Ame Elliot (Simply Secure), David Li (Open Innovation Lab Shenzhen) and Alper Cugun (design strategist). Besides a program full of cutting-edge keynotes such as Blockchain, farm hacking, internet of bikes, conversational interfaces Internet of Toys, fashion tech and smart citizen.
