This session stems from the presentation on World Usability Day titled: "The Evilness of The Design of Everyday Things" - http://wud.eventos.ccg.pt/.
At a time when concepts as "Internet of Things" become more widespread we ask ourselves what is the current reality of traditional devices for worldly use? Being connected and sharing information between devices and humans, how are the interfaces being treated in an accessibility point of view? Are we not overly dazzled by technology at the expense of a more inclusive and user-centered design?
