Not your father’s UX

With built-in cameras, flash/light, accelerometer, GPS, M7 coprocessor, Bluetooth, compass, audio & video recording, etc., devices today sometimes need a UX that’s far beyond filling out fields in a form. Not all apps, certainly, but sometimes it’s best to completely rethink the business problem rather than port an existing web solution.

Clearly these are consumer use cases, but it just takes a little imagination to think about how these sensors could be put to use in an LOB app. Can bar codes be acquired via the camera? Can data be acquired via Bluetooth? Would audio input be useful? Can the user’s location data and orientation be derived automatically?
