A talking home assistant is one thing, but a growling toilet bowl, a water-addicted indoor plant or a persuasive blender? De Dingen De Baas turns everyday objects into household members with their proper agendas and a personal opinion they gladly share with you.
You find yourself in a near future, surrounded by self-aware items and appliances. Whoever said only humans are capable of thoughts and emotions? The things you encounter will freely engage in conversation, hungry for approval and information. But how far are you going to let this smart technology into your life? Would you share your data? Do you give them control?
With this interactive installation, Fontys ICT InnovationLab is investigating how programmed personalities can influence us in an intelligent environment. De Dingen De Baas is a project by students of the minor Digital Experience Design at Fontys Hogescholen ICT.
Fontys ICT InnovationLab offers room for experiment, exploration and new combinations that lead to innovation. The InnovationLab is a new form of education that allows students to explore and develop their talents outside the ‘comfort zone’ of a course or discipline.
Fontys ICT InnovationLab is an initiative by Fontys School of ICT.
