Mutative design: What's New with Project Phoebe

Exchange Hub 4:00pm

Chat on Slack


Project Phoebe (phoebe.xyz) is the first step toward mutative design - a new design methodology that would allow interfaces to be born, live, and evolve according to a user's reality. It's an idea that looks to solve the problem of designing for averages, and create interfaces that account for all users. In this session, we'll take a look at the latest developments in Project Phoebe - from the theory behind successful mutations to the ways in which our perception of software's abilities and responsibilities will change as we continue to move toward a future where software helps users by knowing them.
