Sensors, cameras and micro-controllers are used ever more extensively to manage city infrastructure, optimize transportation, monitor our houses and run security applications.
Advances in microelectronics now make it possible to spread “smart dust” networks of tiny, wireless, microelectro-mechanical systems, devices, sensors or robots. One consequence of this process is that our houses, our cities and objects are getting “smarter” and more embedded with an increasing amount of electronic devices, which are starting to talk back to us. And this is radically changing the interaction we have as humans with the environment around us. This is the context in which this proposal for the Samsung Exhibition has been developed.
