Implicit control

for the smart home

tangible interaction

2017

With the increasing presence of digital devices in the house environment, controlling all the parameters of the home system implies a considerable effort. A research through design study is presented combining emotionally rich interaction and implicit interaction. The goal is to make system settings graspable with a physical interface that senses implicit cues, remaining intuitive. Do users still feel in control when settings change because of their implicit actions (subconscious)?

- Participant from the user study.

No clue if I felt in control: I just know that the lights were pleasant and non intrusive.
