I witnessed today something that should inspire anyone working in the design of something, no matter what that is. An elder was sitting in a coffee shop and produced a smart phone from her purse to show to another person how to use Whatsapp.  She then proceeded unlocking the other person phone, a different model, to show there was also the same application installed.

From a design standpoint this can mean only one thing: the user mental model is fully reflected in the final product in every aspect. The touchscreen paradigm, the clear, simple and single goal of an application made this possible. Remove any of these from the equation and you are back to an unusable geeks’ only toy that won’t impress any grandma.

This is the spirit in which iotp2p was born, anyone regardless of education, technical inclination and expertise should be able to control his home heating system or trigger his greenhouse watering system from anywhere in the world or what else if they wish to do so.
