Transcript

  • 1. Squinting at Technology
    To create memorable experiences, brands need to behave like ‘gutter technologists’
    (Nathan Martin/Deeplocal, PA)
  • 2. To invent radical new experiences through technology,think more like…
  • 3. VS.
    artist
    developer
  • 4. VS.
    freight hopper
    commuter
  • 5. VS.
    human
    parasite
  • 6. Challenging technology
    Nathan Martin, Founder and CEO of Deeplocal
    Bridging the online and physical worlds.
    "Technology comes with a prescribed set of rules. Innovative amateurs naturally disregard these rules; experts almost always subconsciously abide by them."
    "The downside of a greater understanding of technology is our adoption of its conventions and a restriction in our creativity."
  • 7. Gutter Tech
    • Using the lowest possible technology to solve a problem – think like an amateur.
    • 8. Don’t use new gadgets just for the heck of it.
    • 9. “We must live in the gutter, scavenging for inspiration in the most hidden, absurd places. We must be willing to use all of the tools that are available to follow users’ patterns, ignoring specific technologies.”
    • 10. Play with the recombination of old and new technology to create new ways of engaging with objects and people.
    • 11. "On its own, technology is stale and unaffecting. Deeply understanding the motivations of an audience and the adaptability of old and new technology allows us to transform seemingly boring machines in to clever system that engage participants."
  • What do you see when you squint instead of look?
    In Nathan’s words, literally “to distort. To avoid the details and focus on the outline.”
    Ignore what something is and open your mind to the potential of what it can be! Squint and “become a daydreaming amateur” to set yourself free from the restrictions of your expertise.
    Squint. Think. Make.
  • 12. What happens when the creativity of artists is combined with the expertise of technologists and designers?
    The Old and New Media Artist Residency Program
    Created to promote an exchange of ideas, skills and networks.
    Gutter tech lab
    Experiment with old and new technologies. Creatively combine seemingly disparate objects to create compelling interactions.
  • 13. Nike Chalkbot
    • Lance Armstrong's Livestrongcampaign: teamed up with Nike and Deeplocal to create the Chalkbotto display messages of “hope, perseverance and love” at the 2009 Tour De France.
    • 14. Followed the cycling tradition of writing inspirational messages along the course to inspire the participants.
    • 15. Robot was programmed to paint text messages in yellow chalk along the 2,200 mile route. Trailer-mounted device, works like an ink-jet printer.
    • 16. 36,000 messages were received via Twitter, SMS, web banners. Contributors received a GPS-tagged image of their message printed on the road.
    • 17. People tend to better associate with physical, real things. Feel more connected with the message they send. Not just a throw-away text, it becomes a ‘thing’.

    • 21. Fun canchangethingsforthebetter.
  • Volkswagen "Fun Theory" : Piano Staircase
    66% over normal used the stairs
  • 22. "For brands, thinking like a gutter technologist means developing engaging, moving and personal experiences that are not guided by technology but rather by the movement of people."
    “Your audience does not care about technology, they care about experiences. The brand that brings them a memorable experience is the brand they care about."
  • 23.
  • 24. Moral of the story:
    Squinting may be bad for your eyes, but good for the mind.
    Scavenge in the ‘gutter’ for the greatest inspiration!
  • 25. Inspired by this concept I decided to try an experiment of my own…

    The earliest surviving written work on the subject of architecture is De architectura, by the Roman architect Vitruvius in the early 1st century CE. According to Vitruvius, a good building should satisfy the three principles of firmitas, utilitas, venustas, which translate roughly as –
    Durability – it should stand up robustly and remain in good condition.
    Utility – it should be useful and function well for the people using it
    Beauty – it should delight people and raise their spirits.
