    Visions for a Smart Home

    October 21, 2015, Dr. Joachim Quantz

    We have reached the point where, if you have the means, you can have a high-tech smart home built right now. It would, however, still be a one-off project, with solutions developed for a single person and property. You can’t yet drop into a DIY store and buy all the bits and pieces you would[···]

    Beyond The Kiosk: Prototyping Mobile Experience For Responsive Spaces

    April 14, 2015, Raphaël de Courville

    What if you could enter a museum and immediately interact with the exhibits from your own smartphone? What if you could do it without installing or configuring an app?

    The Museum App – A new way of experiencing an exhibition with friends

    December 10, 2014, Marc Wiesenberg

    People usually visit museums and exhibitions in groups, with family, friends, and in school groups. Unfortunately, social cohesion within groups is lost with the classic audio guides currently in use. The Museum App, which I developed as part of my Master’s thesis, makes an exhibition visit into a shared experience. The web app is part[···]

    Prototyping — Thinking ideas in the world

    November 13, 2014, Jussi Ängeslevä

    My understanding of ‘prototyping’ is ‘thinking in the world’ or ‘integrating with the word by physical means’. Prototyping is the creation of simplified and abstracted models, which can be used to examine individual aspects of a design. The see the overall complexity and effect of a design ‘purely in thought’ is impossible past the very[···]

    Yesterday a unique museum opened that is set to inspire the general public, encouraging their interest in microorganisms and microbiology: Micropia.

    Speculative Design: discarded phones as interfaces in the Smart Home

    September 1, 2014, Jip Eilbracht

    The Smart Home field has been receiving attention from computer technologists and designers for some time already; the promise within closer reach of consumers every day.
