The People in the Internet of Things

March 1, 2016

The Internet of Things is inherently about people — helping to improve their safety or their experiences in their homes, jobs, and in the world. For example, we can warn people of dangerous situations near their current location, recommend the next painting to look at in a museum, or enable them to remotely "program" objects in their smart homes to cooperate with each other. My work will focus on two aspects of this: (1) enabling ordinary users to do this sort of "programming," and (2) doing so in ways that allow IoT systems to be inclusive to both males and females.

"We specialize in creating digital experiences that utilize custom robotics and devices to bridge the gap between online and the real world. Some people call what we do “the internet of things” or “web 3.0.” In our opinion those sound a bit silly. We simply think of ourselves as inventors who are trying to take all the amazingness of what can be done online and bring it into some sort of device or experience in the real world. Stores can be smarter, an ad can come in the form of a hologram you can touch and museums can be as fun as playing with Kinect. It’s time to stop going on as though flying cars and telekinesis headsets don’t exist, and time to make the real world as advanced as the virtual one that’s changed our lives in a single decade. Perhaps you’ll come for a ride with us."
