Enchanted Objects - Design, Human Desire and the Internet of Things

Presented on 12 Jan at BIOSTEC 2015

Keynote Lecturer: David Rose

Abstract: Some believe the future will look like more of the same—more smartphones, tablets, screens embedded in every conceivable surface. David Rose has a different vision: technology that atomizes, combining itself with the objects that make up the very fabric of daily living. Such technology will be woven into the background of our environment, enhancing human relationships and channeling desires for omniscience, long life, and creative expression. The enchanted objects of fairy tales and science fiction will enter real life.
