Countless wireless gadgets, from smart thermostats to smart ovens, have been released as individual smart home components, but as of yet, there hasn’t been any singular technology to stitch all these individual pieces together into the Jetsons-style reality we’ve all been longing for.

Now, major tech companies like Google and Amazon are entering the ring, trying to centralise smart home developments and pave a path toward a more integrated residential future. Google has Google Home, but with their core product still being search, how will this product affect the landscape of search optimisation? How will other smart home devices affect the way people search and glean results?

Learning from Lego: A Step Forward in Modular Web Design

With hundreds of frameworks and UI kits, we are now assembling all kinds of content blocks to make web pages. However, such modularity and versatility hasn’t been achieved on the web element level yet. Learning from Lego, we can push modular web design one step forward.

Rethinking the status quo

So far, we have been doing it on the content block level—every block occupies a full row, has a consistent width, and is self-contained. We are now able to assemble different blocks to make web pages without having to consider the styles and elements within each block. That’s a great step forward. And it has led to an explosion of frameworks and UI kits, making web page design more modular and also more accessible to the masses.Modular atomic design has been around for a while. Conceptually, we all love it—web components should be versatile and reusable. We should be able to place them like bricks, interlocking them however we want without worrying about changing any code.

Achieving similar modularity on the web element level is not as easy. Pattern Lab says we should be able to put UI patterns inside each other like Russian nesting dolls. But thinking about Russian nesting dolls, every layer has its own thickness—the equivalent of padding and margin in web design. When a three-layer doll is put next to a seven-layer doll, the spacing in between is uneven. While it’s not an issue in particular with dolls, on web pages, that could lead to either uneven white space or multilevel CSS overrides.
