- TedX talk I gave in 2013 about my research on the future of home design and open business models for smart home products
Our homes are changing. Connected products and advancements in technology are bringing in a new era of adaptive and smart products into our homes. The ramifications of these trends have an important impact on how we will want to design and innovate these new generation of products.
Software has been excellent at letting us personalise devices, but when these current and future trends start really transforming the home will we want the same level of personalisation in our hardware products?
