Feeling Home – Tangible Information Visualization in Smart Home Environments in Relation to the Concept of Transhumanism


Current trends in the area of smart and interactive environments, such as future homes, show a dramatically increasing number of networked appliances, electronic devices and sensors and a coherently rising amount of information and data flows. Instead of conveying this digital information only through a conventional graphical user interface, we propose a more subliminal way, following the human perception in the physical world. We use haptic feedback to make gathered data at home tangible for inhabitants and therefore extend their human capacities of perceiving otherwise invisible information.
