LateLab | The Internet Of Things That Matter
Thursday 10th April 2014, 7 for 7.30pm.
Informatics Forum, 10 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB
How does data change our relationship with physical ‘things’? The Internet of Things exploits new technologies to link physical artefacts with data across social and technical networks. Join the Design Informatics Research Group to explore this new technology.
From teapots that you can haggle with in Oxfam shops or shelves that shake when earthquakes take place on the other side of the world, to clocks that print you a postcard of something that happened in the past. Let’s reflect upon the implication on our social lives.
