Smart Objects Smart Objects Presentation Transcript

  • Welcome: : Abigail Menard
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects Smart Objects & “ The Internet of Things TOPIC:
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects REFERENCE:
    • “ Shaping Things”
    • by Bruce Sterling
    … . Shaping Things hovers between science fictions and design fact, pushing forward into the future and showing how design happens. – Bill Moggridge, CoFounder of IDEO
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects REFERENCE:
    • Bruce Sterling:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INIEV_iB0eE
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects HISTORY:
    • The evolution of human interaction with objects (according to Sterling)
    artifacts  machines  products  gizmos  SPIMES
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects HISTORY:
    • Artifacts: simple hand-made, human powered objects, created through need and logic
    • Machines: complex composition of artifacts powered by outside energy
    • Products: mass produced and assembled products supported by organized systems
    Early Civilizations Industrial Revolution Mass Production
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects HISTORY: This is our current technoculture
    • Gizmos:
    technology + culture = technoculture unstable, customizable, programmable, highly functional interfaces “ GIZMOS have enough functionality to actively nag people” –Sterling, p.11
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects HISTORY:
    • Gizmos:

  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects SPIMES:
    • What is a SPIME?
    • This is our future technoculture
    - “SPIMES begin and end as data” -Sterling, p.11 - traceable through time, continually sustainable and enhanceable, uniquely identifiable sources of data - objects produced digitally and solely based on informational support
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects SPIMES:
    • Meet a SPIME
    -welcome to a completely different human/object interaction experience object = history composition location price creation idea research future
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects SPIMES:
    • a SPIME by another name
    smartifact – originated by Marketing Management in 1998 magazine to define products that showed self awareness e-textile – Rick Merritt writes about the fabric with sensors woven into it, in Electronic Engineering Times in 2005 personal area network – IBM introduced a prototype of an object that uses an electronic field to interpret individuals in 1997
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects SPIMES: e-textile
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects SPIMES: P.A.N.
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects IDENTITY:
    • Identity vs. Physicality
    -with smart objects the identity of an object becomes more important than its physical presence -a physical object can only interact with a limited amount of people -a SPIME is defined the information behind that actual physical conception
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects IDENTITY:
    • EAN-UCC & RFID
    - European Article Numbering-Uniform Code Council - Radio Frequency Identification
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects IDENTITY:
    • “ Arphids”
    • Everything is traceable, which leads to an:
    “ Internet of Things” -the endless options for the creation of different forms and uses of RFIDs * magnetic strips/chips * molecule sensors (think rain) * sonar sensors (think bats)
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects INTERNET OF THINGS:
    • An “Internet of Things” is…
    according to Sterling: according to others: a mix of arphids, data monitors, repeaters, relayers all linked to a global network Auto-ID Center (MIT): a wireless self-configuring network
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects
    • Forseeable future of IOTs:
    • inventory control
      • in house
      • global tracking
    • security
      • confined areas
      • cross location tracking
    • “ smart” environments
      • personal; homes
      • public; planes, stores, restaurants ,
    INTERNET OF THINGS:
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects INTERNET OF THINGS:
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects
    • The good and the bad
    PROS: the application in limitless CONS: can there be limits? jobs education quality of life regulations privacy INTERNET OF THINGS:
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects DESIGNERS:
    • Got some questions?
    what does it take to make it work? how much energy? how much can it do? is it safe? how do you maintain it? what about patents and copyrights? what are the limitations? what about packaging? what are the materials for construction? storage? sales pitch? what about pricing? value? identity of the user? what does it look like???
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects DESIGNERS:
    • Effect on careers
    1. conception catch up quick 2. production jump on the bandwagon 3. marketing improve it your way 4. maintenance learn it now
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects YOU:
    • Contribute, like now:
    - SPIMES and IoT’s open an entire new store of possibilities…but you’re not the only one waiting in line all those ideas you thought were crazy…..not so much anymore “ its more fiction than science”
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects YOU:
    • Be ready to work with an IOT:
    • “ The sky’s not the limit at all – for an Internet of Things, the sky is the metric .”
    • “ SPIME economics”
      • an example by Sterling:
      • How would you buy a book on Amazon now? How in the future?
  • Abigail Menard Smart Objects YOU:
    • START THINKING NOW
      Here come the BIOTS  SPIMES and IoT’s are the result of forward thinking……start existing like your living in the future…maybe then you can start thinking about the future of that future
