Value sensitive design is the practice of incorporating human factors such as culture, values and lifestyles into the design of technology. It is associated with techniques such as privacy by design that have wide appeal to users.

As the technology advances, firms that are able to push the technology into the background emerge and capture market share by making the technology more usable and generally pleasing to users.
