A quick update. Last week I spend quite some time in Eindhoven at Dutch Design Week. Doing a presentation
and a workshop
at DRIVE festival, both related to PACT research. And part of round table session
on design thinking and big data.
Of the vast amount of events I managed to see Mind the Step
, Robot Love
and some other things in Klokgebouw and Veem. I also saw the VPRO Medialab installation/experience Home Smart Home
at Van Abbe. The experience is part of a project with three movies on how smart technology could impact our home, with interesting angles. I was involved in the beginning doing a presentation for the documentary makers who went pitching, and we organised a ThingsCon Salon together in May, in Eindhoven too.
The experience was well made, with touch of escape room feel and beaconized triggered interactions. I missed a crucial part though, distracted by the device (a smart buddy via a phone). I liked how it touched on some of the topics we will need to address when we team up with the assistants. The mini docus can be found online.
