45 min. talk
The ‘internet of things’ moves technology out of our hands and into the environments we inhabit. Rather than devices which constantly demand our attention, technology can be embedded everywhere yet goes largely unnoticed until called upon; present but at the periphery of our attention for most of the time. This creates a new relationship between us, the environments we inhabit and the technology in those environments.
The ‘internet of things’ moves technology out of our hands and into the environments we inhabit. Rather than devices which constantly demand our attention, technology can be embedded everywhere yet goes largely unnoticed until called upon; present but at the periphery of our attention for most of the time. This creates a new relationship between us, the environments we inhabit and the technology in those environments. In this session we will examine two case studies of designing smart environments: the product design of a suite of kitchen appliances that work together to create ambient intelligence; and a concept for the retail store of the future. We will discuss the information architecture of intelligent environments.
