The Augmented Body. New scenarios for a wearable technology suited to human nature

1,654 views

Published on

Master of Science thesis at Milan's Polytechnic University (Politecnico di Milano), Product Design for Innovation degree. Project in collaboration with Jawbone.

More than a decade ago cameras were integrated into devices that had nothing to do with photography: cellphones. Today another change of paradigm is happening: sensors are entering in products we wear. A blue ocean of new design possibilities is ready to be fully navigated. In this scenario there’s no more reason to create the umpteenth cool wearable device that will remain a rendering on kickstarter. Probably it’s far wiser to focus on creating a tool that will allow a company to start an innovation process to succeed in the long run. An ‘environment’ where products, softwares and experiences can grow together, shaping the future of wearable devices. In the next years we will find an increasingly smaller and invasive technology, therefore this technology will necessarily have to interact with the body in a far more subtle way. How is it possible? Well, a good point will be starting to not use the already overloaded visual channels, capitalizing on the other hand on new possibilities to transfer informations to the body. This will have to be a technology able to respect the sensory nature of the self. A self that won’t be just ‘quantified’, but whose natural possibilities will be implemented and augmented by sensors and processor over or even underneath our skin.

  50. 50. SENT BODY LANGUAGE add files add co-worker I accept the terms of this agreement BODY Body language refers to various forms of non- verbal communication, wherein a person may reveal clues as to some unspoken intention or feeling through their physical behaviour. These behaviours can include body posture, gestures, facial expressions, and eye movements. Although this article focuses on interpretations of human body language, also animals use body language as a communication mechanism.
  51. 51. ADD BODY LANGUAGE I accept the terms of this agreement BODY Hand gestures add files Description
  52. 52. EDIT BODY LANGUAGE BODY Hand gestures add files Gestures are a form of nonverbal communication in which visible bodily actions are used to communicate important messages, either in place of speech or together and in parallel with spoken words.[1] Gestures include movement of the hands, face, or other parts of the body. Physical non-verbal communication such as purely expressive displays, proxemics, or displays of joint attention differ from gestures, which communicate specific messages.
