Project: Adaptive and informative skin
Concept and Vision
With this prototype I want to show the possibility of how we can show information in another way than we are used to. The weather outside is constantly changing but the only way how we see it change nowadays is by weather apps on our mobile phone. I think that we miss the qualities of things surrounding us by simplifying them. I want to show nature beauty by mimicking nature with techniques of today.
I have the feeling that in the world of today we have 2 different things, one the mobile digital world, and the other one the “old” physical world. Both have qualities, advantages and disadvantages. I see an opportunity as a designer to find new way’s in combining these 2 worlds. It feels for me that we have moved from a period in time where we could live more on our senses an intuition to a time where all the information is direct, and available all the time. With for example the information flow of the weather I want to point out that it can be different than a weather app on you mobile phone.
The prototype needs some development, until it can really provide you unconsciously with information.
In the perfect situation I want to eliminate the need to check what kind of weather it will be on your mobile phone because you unconsciously already know.
The weather is just one possibility, where are more possibility to merge the digital world into the physical world and let them work together so that we can stimulate all our senses?
