  • 1. Do-it-Yourself Creation of Pervasive, Tangibe Applications Smart Objects and Smart Applications
  • 2. Studio Objectives
      • Experience the possibilities of DiY creation of pervasive applications
      • Pervasive applications
        • Tied to everyday objects and problems
        • Aware of the user and the environment
      • DiY creation
        • Non-expert user is able to create and innovate in unexpected ways
  • 3. The user as an innovative creator
      • Traditionally, designers try to create a finished product
        • An object, an application, a tool …
        • Very precise function
      • However, most innovative successes come from using objects for unexpected things
  • 4. The user as an innovative creator
      • An Example: IKEA hacks
        • Clever design for making inexpensive furniture that users can build by themselves
        • Some users, however, decide to « ignore » the instructions…
          • ¿Salad bowl as a sink?
          • ¿Spherical speaker arrays?
  • 5. Our idea here
      • Bring this kind of « user creativity » to the domain of pervasive applications
        • Provide the equivalent to glue and duct tape so that users may attach devices , tools & components to make them work together.
        • See what happens
          • Hopefully, it will be amazing!
  • 6. The Smart Object
      • Basically, take an ordinary object and make it « smart »
        • Able to sense the environment: sensors
        • Able to interact with it: effectors
      • It rocks, but it’s pretty useless…
    sensors+ effectors Smart chicken
  • 7. The Smart Application
      • Basically, « glue » the smart objects together to perform a useful function
      • What’s the « duct tape » here?
        • Provide an standard interface so that objects and users may interact easily
      • Now we can take over the world!!!
    « duct tape » + user cleverness Lots of smart chickens An army of smart chickens
  • 8. What are we going to do here?
      • Create smart objects from scratch
        • Well, not totally from scratch
          • We will use Arduino boards for that
          • Though we could use anything else
      • Create smart applications which make use of the smart objects
        • Our « glue »: drivers which make a common interface for all smart objects
        • Our « duct tape »: a gateway which allows to hold them all together
  • 9. What kind of things we can achieve?
      • With enough time and technological support, almost anything we can think of
      • Let us assume plenty of both
        • 2020: World is full of IoT, smart objects, pervasive and tangible applications
        • How would be approach day-to-day challenges in this context?
      • We will focus on specific problems
  • 10. Problem statement #1: DIY granny-assistive smart flat
      • Grandma is going to visit for a monh
        • Doesn’t know about basic arrangements
        • You don’t have time to explain
        • She will be alone most of the time
        • She is a bit deaf (e.g. won’t hear the phone)
      • How can you make your flat
      • instantly granny assistive
      • using smart objects?
  • 11. Problem statement #1: DIY Eco-smart neighborhood
      • You’re concerned with sustainability
        • Reduce human ecological footprint
        • Involve your neighbors in eco-friendliness
      • How can smart objects contribute
      • to create an eco-enthusiast
      • neighborhood?
  • 12. Problem statement #1: DIY Social City
      • One step further: the Smart City
        • Reducing traffic congestion
        • Providing information about plces you like
        • Identify common needs among the citizens
      • How can we use smart objects
      • to increase citizen
      • participation and social
      • impact?
