“I would argue that design as a profession has changed more in the last 30 years than it ever did in the time that came before that,” says Alysha Naples, senior director of experience design at Magic Leap. “Technology is shifting the landscape we live in, in an ever more rapid place, and we’ve been looking to it to fix a whole host of problems, but each innovation has come at a cost.”  In When Worlds Collide: Physical and Virtual Connections at the 2015 IDSA International Conference, Naples says we are about to undergo a paradigm shift in computing and will need to change expectations around design, materiality and experience.
