Matt Jones for BERG brings the big science.
(Again, helpfully/annoyingly, tying into the essay thing I started over the weekend.)
It’s very good.
It’s a bunch of thinking about how designers (and BERG in particular) might start thinking through making products for ’smart cities’ (as they’re known for good and for ill) including the qualities that these products should possess in order for them to be invited into people’s homes – something we’ve started calling‘mujicomp’as shorthand in the studio.
Also it talks a little bit about how the aggregation and combination of smart, connected products could build into bottom-up infrastructures rather than giant top-down municipal approaches to augmenting cities with technology.
