  • Tiny familiar robots Thoughts on the world of the internet of things. designswarm // RIG London
  • Internet of things Letting the internet & technology change our relationship to the physical world through complex interactions. It affects how we tell stories , how we build new economies on top of data and shapes decision-making about ourselves and our environment.
  • How do you tell stories with objects?
  • Use what we have at hand
  • Magic wands What is the function of these objects as objects that allow us to connect or identify with ourselves and each other. What do they say about us?
  • Codes The initial version of ThingLink (circa 2007) was a coded way of attaching information to the physical world.
  • QR Codes Tricky little things but can be applied in more creative ways.
  • RFID Mir:ror was founded by Violet to use RFID stickers to attach digital content to objects. Largely replaced by semacodes at the moment.
  • Barcodes The initial version of Stickybits (2009) allowed you to associate content or links with bar codes.
  • Bespoke devices Using older device interfaces to connect to a local network. this will dissapear to be replaced by a smart phone.
  • How do these objects help me understand complex issues?
  • Data for the environment We have access to more information about our surroundings than ever before.
  • Or create products that allow a market to develop quickly because of ease Of use.
  • Data for near future policy The trick is to make that data tell a story, change policy, highlight a problem. Geiger counters are impossible to find online now.
  • What is the digital life of those objects?
  • Data for the unhealthy Fitbit is an exercise and sleep tracker that talks to your laptop quickly and easily.
  • What do these objects tell me about online?
  • LikeLight The DIY project lights up a physical button when people like a page on FB
  • Like card Renault connected an RFID card to a FB page “like” at a car show
  • Nokia Push N900 Tinker + Hyper Happen 2009-
  • > N900 Snowboard demo
  • Nearly there…
  • Mobile replaces products The mobile app market will swallow the market of specialised products for amateurs.
  • Data in the future RFID implants for recreational / security purposes are getting common. They are free for dogs after all.
  • Changing the nature of humanity When people are lead to understand each other in terms of parameters, how do we build long-term interactions.
  • Make the maths make sense Online dating continues to mathematicise serendipity.
  • Data will replace us Data is driving generative online personalities seeing the end of empty marketing personas.
  • Lying will become difficult Infrastructures will adapt quickly.
  • A losing industrial system The disappearance of jobs based on paperwork.
  • Critics are everywhere Mashups highlight difficult social scenarios that become part of life in the 21 st century.
  • New tools for innovation Google IO ADK will change the landscape of objects built with intelligence.
  • Some thoughts.
  • How much does it cost? More than you think but less than a TV ad.
  • How do I know how many people have interacted with the installation, object, environment? Physically measure it or ask them to check-in!
  • If you know how many people are in the room, how does your interaction change? Yes. Design for one & design for many.
  • Why augment a physical object? Think of why a connection to the internet matters or when it doesn’t.
  • Get product designers & hackers involved. Think of the long tail of a campaign.
