Design studies for domestic IoT (Internet of Things) Hubs for an electronics manufacturer. The control of many interconnected IoT devices at home will become a major design challenge in the future. IoT installations will be so complex that they cannot be controlled by usual interfaces. Instead, their complexity has to be made intuitive. In this design study, atmosphere, light, temperature and ambient sound can be controlled by touch. The IoT Hubs measure user touch input on their entire surface and give feedback by way of subtly animated patterns and graphics. © Mario Gagliardi 2013
