David Rose, b. 1967, American based in Boston, scientist, business executive and lecturer at the MIT Media Lab, as well as CEO of Ditto Labs, describes the objects he has transformed into inspiring objects. Daily normal objects which give us signals and/or information we normally would find in an app on the smartphone. Skype in a cupboard, a pill bottle with a lid which alerts it’s time to take the pill, an ambient umbrella, an anoto pen, a sealing wallet when the budget goes low and a Google Maps screen in the coffee table all are a few of the devices which David has developed.
“Enchanted objects will make interfaces tangible, haptic, incidental, embedded, expressive and humanistic.”
