Prototyping an interface for connected spaces

Telos is a product sketch exploring the ways many people might interact with and control a connected space.

The two week experiment began with interviews, exploring how people would like to customise their digital environment using various props. We then prototyped a connected surface to demonstrate how devices might connect to a more complex service layer (using an IFTTT-style interface).

Unpicking the ways that Internet connected objects deal with identity and permissions has become a core part of our work, and it’s something we are exploring further in projects like the home environment monitor and the design patterns catalogue.
