‘User informed objects’ introduces a shift in the order of use.
We are designing 3D interactive products to be ‘Co designed’ and personalised by the user online.
The user is in the center of what we do. It is about the notion of ‘In Touch’ and how can we stay ‘In Touch’ with our user communities. It is a shift from ‘Consumer’ to ‘user’ into a ‘partner’.
Using 3D algorithms and sensor personal data streams, we can now capture user behavior patterns and ergonomic characteristics. Over time we can study our user communities and propose better products and services with enhanced performance and better fit.
‘We should own less but with more value – things we own need to perform better for us’.
