Ambient Computing: peaceful coexistence
The future of computing is not about escape. It is about us, and the amplifying force it has on our own abilities, in the world we already live in. As the mobile phone placed digitally augmented life in our hands, spatial and ambient computing will give us the same value, heads-up and hands-free. It will coalesce from multiple technologies and inputs, ultimately empowering the real world and its real inhabitants.
Smart Dumb Things is our smart home vision that brings ordinary objects to life through technology. Projected interfaces activate the environment around you, adding layers of functionality to your real-world experience without the unnecessary overhead of multiple devices. The concept reconsiders our interactions with computers and their place in our lives.
