The new Oracle Cloud User Experience (UX) lab is officially open for business! Located on the bottom floor of the 200 building at Oracle headquarters in Redwood Shores, Calif., it hosted its first tour during Oracle OpenWorld 2014. We can’t stop talking about it though. The Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) team has written about it on the Voice of User Experience, or VoX blog, and again on the AppsLab blog.
Can’t come to HQ to see the Oracle Applications user experience for yourself? Learn about the UX roadmap in a new, free eBook from the Oracle Applications User Experience team. Find the download link on the VoX blog.

• A simple user-centered design process
• Oracle user experience design patterns and guidelines

Wearables: The AppsLab team has been digging into discussions on wearable technology on their blog. Wearables have been part of the OAUX team’s research and development for some time now. Head over for a post on “Google Glass, Android Wear, and Apple Watch.” Also posted in the last month: “Pseudo-Philosophical Observations on Wearables, Part 1,” and you’ll find a bit about wearables from Samsung, among other things, in this post as well: “Musings on Samsung Developer Conference 2014.”
Hack space; save the planet: In case you didn’t hear about the very cool asteroid hackathon in which members of the OAUX team participated -- or if you want to know more about what happened there – here are a few new blog posts:
