The future of smart home appliances promise to make the future home a much more easy-to-use experience for dwellers. Are there any other ways of using technology where the concept of smart homes goes far beyond the existing applications to enhance interaction between emerging devices and human towards smart living applications?

With AveaLabs, we rethought the future living and the digital products and services that supported the experience. Using a human-centered design approach and our extensive knowledge of cutting-edge technologies, we designed physical products as well as mobile experiences around smart living spaces.

The final design components included:

1- FLOC: A wearable clip with a mobile application for entertaining in smart living spaces with different means of digital devices.
2- SOL-CHARGE: A set of smart textile for harvesting and consuming energy in a more rigidless way in smart living spaces.
3- THE BOX OF HOLDING: An intelligent container system that helps to store digitally tagged objects and enhances the relation of memory and physical objects in smart living spaces through RFID and an accompanying application.
4- COOKBOX.NET: A smart kitchen appliance that augments and explores different means of shared cooking experience in smart living spaces.
