Augmented Living
Augmented Interface Design for Daily Devices

We have entered the age of Augmentation – argued by Brett King – where machines and devices are closer to our bodies, we are no longer restricted by our physical bodies. We are using smartphones as our extended memories and intelligence and therefore we are already cyborgs. Different wearable technologies are developing at an exponential speed. They will be extending our bodily limitations in various ways and the immersive experiences will occupy our daily lives everywhere in all aspects. What are some inevitable developments that will affect our lives and the way we experience our cities? In this design lab, we are going to investigate and imagine ways how some specific technologies will change our daily lives and the way we interact with our surroundings.
