Awareness of Things: Designing Novel Data for Future Daily Objects

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Daily objects can capture rich information about who we are, our choices and what we value through our interactions with them. By taking these daily objects as inspirational material for design, this work introduces a new IoT design concept, the 'Awareness of Things (AoT)'. AoT is about the design of novel inter-object capabilities to construct knowledge of a situation or facts collectively. To position and further develop this concept, this paper presents four on-going projects to explore strategies for IoT designers to capture, identify, and design hidden, implicit or transient data streams from connected daily objects. By presenting these projects in relation, I aim to initiate new discussions on the design of AoT, and what new perspectives can be brought into the design community through a better understanding of data in design.
