Key question: Is interface vanishing as
       a discrete phenomenon?

Observations
• In the past products mainly took over physical functions
  from the user.
• In this information era, mental functions are taken over as
  well.
• A product is not anymore defined by just design
  requirements, but also by a man-machine “contract” in
  which rule for cooperation between them are recorded.
• Products will not relate to each other anymore as master
  and slave but as partners aiming for an objective, which
  generally is decided for by the user.
• But even that is not necessary. The objective could be
  decided for by the supplier of the device.

Conclusion
• Concluding we could argue that the relation man-
   machine is changing from:
“a paradigm in which the interface is acting as an
   intermediary between user and device”
to
“a paradigm in which man and machine communicate
   directly.

EXTENSION OF HUMAN CAPABILITIES
  • Donald Schön [3] and others defined “extension of human
    capabilities” as a main goal of technology.

  • Philosopher Peter-Paul Verbeek [2] added to that idea the
    principle that technology is not something that humans work
    with, but something that is part of being human.




3/9/2013             Smart Material Interfaces, Material Design   6
EXTENSION OF HUMAN CAPABILITIES
• In fact there is nothing new about that.
• A pair of spectacles is an extension of your sense of
  sight.
• Your clothes are an extension of your capabilities to
  manage body temperature, as well as an extension of
  you capabilities to express yourself.




3/9/2013          Smart Material Interfaces, Material Design   7
EXTENSION OF HUMAN CAPABILITIES
• Already thousands of years, a horse was an extension of our
  capabilities to move.
• The difference between spectacles and clothes on the one
  hand and horses on the other hand is the fact that horses are
  smart products.
• As the phenomenon of smart products is booming, it is time
  to learn from one of the first smart product: a horse.

conclusions
     • This vacuum cleaner has started to look a little bit like a
       horse.
     • It communicates with body language and manages an
       own agenda.
     • For developing body language a lot of technology has to
       be developed.
     • Passive color changing materials are proven to be
       possible, but are not yet applicable on a large scale.
     • The same counts for shape changing materials. In a horse
       this technology is present but it is difficult to imitate.
     • There is a lot of work for biomimicry people.
