Project: RobjectsApril 12, 2011 at 2:30pm
Robjects proposes an environment where existing domestic products are treated with elements of autonomy, intelligence, sensing and networking to create robotic objects and spaces. These adapted products not only offer labour saving opportunities that aid us in our increasingly busy lives but also intervene positively in the complex balance of domestic harmony.
Traditional labour saving devices whilst certainly saving labour still leave tasks that need to be divided. Communication and entertainment devices can be a common source of domestic dispute. The addition of a robotic layer in these situations aims to alleviate these disputes effectively making our domestic products more domestic.
At the core of this proposal are the reality and rules of the existing home, offering a palatable and logical route through which robotic technology can enter our lives and mediate our relationships with technology and each other.
