Fall Final Presentation

  1. 1. WHAT WILL IT SAY ABOUT YOU? Katrina Bekessy | Thesis Studio | Fall 2008
  2. 2. OVERVIEW What is PING? PING is a smart trash/ recycling bin. Its aim is to serve as an active participant that collaborates with users in an effort to encourage better waste and recycling habits. PING does this by tracking its usage and relaying this information back to users in a meaningful Way. PING is an experiment in ubiquitous computing with the intention of finding new, useful and interesting ways to incorporate this technology into everyday life. 000000000000
  3. 3. THE PROBLEM Ubiquitous Computing. ..Huh? - Ubicomp is ill defined and unclear. - Too foreign for people to make it a common reality. - Fears of marketing exploitation and losing privacy. . ..but this is supposed to be our future? 000000000000
  4. 4. DESIGN QUESTIONS How can ubicomp work for people outside of utility and the ‘cool factor’? O O O 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 00
  5. 5. DESIGN QUESTIONS How can ubicomp work for people outside of utility and the ‘cool factor’? How can data collected by smart objects be useful to the individual and a larger community? 000000000000
  6. 6. DESIGN QUESTIONS How can ubicomp work for people outside of utility and the ‘cool factor’? How can data collected by smart objects be useful to the individual and a larger community? How can smart objects serve as active participants that shift the way in which they are used? 000000000000
  7. 7. DESIGN QUESTIONS How can ubicomp work for people outside of utility and the ‘cool factor’? How can data collected by smart objects be useful to the individual and a larger community? How can smart objects serve as active participants that shift the way in which they are used? If objects could talk, what would they say about us and how would we respond? 000000000000

  20. 20. QUESTIONS Balancing Priorities. - How can I ensure that the online portal and the physical bin are seen as a unified entity? - Which implications of PING are most important? - How can I make this project pave the way for its potential future in a ubicomp society? - What immediate holes need to be addressed? 000000000000
