Basic infrastructure and components that allow the rapid development of devices

The work of the project focused on the design and development of a series of glow tags to illustrate one of the key intimate media design concepts outlined by Philips design. The developed infrastructure focused on fusing input from a number of everyday sensors and using these to illuminate a glow tag. This small-scale device was designed to be placed within a domestic environment in order to draw attention to users of the space. The working device exploited wireless communication to allow the device to be place anywhere within the home. Whenever the user attention needed to be drawn to the device it was sent a signal that illuminated the tag.

In addition to the sensor infrastructure and platform the demonstrators also exploited a range of sensing technologies to develop a series of different design prototypes. These included the development of a handheld device that allowed users to uncover why a particular glow tag had become illuminated and a series of different ways of using projected interface to illuminate areas of the home and draw attention to these.
