My Master Thesis started with a theoretical part. Named “The intranet of things” it was a personal research about the place of new technologies at home and the role of designers in that domain.
The home being a private space there is reluctance against new technologies inside it. I conclude then that designers should explore this integration in a more critical way and propose new kind of interactions beyond the screens leading to new experiences and going back to the tangible.
Dephone is then a possible answer to that reflexion.
