設計工作室New Territory研究了如何將同理心引入智能家居
Design studio New Territory has studied how to bring empathy into smart homes


移情技術(Empathic Technology)是一系列概念的集合,旨在探索物聯網產品如何“以非傳統但有意義的方式”嵌入我們的生活空間。

總部位于倫敦的New Territory發布了一系列新概念,探索如何以新穎且以人為本的方式設計智能家居產品。我們的目標是響應不斷發展的家居理念,使用面向未來的設備和智能建筑裝置,更好地補充我們與家庭空間的親密關系。

Empathic Technology is a collection of concepts to explore how IoT products could be embedded in our living spaces “in unconventional, yet meaningful ways”.
London-based New Territory has released a set of new concepts exploring how smart home products could be designed with a novel, human-centric approach. The goal is to respond to the ever-evolving idea of home with future-focused devices and intelligent architectural fixtures that better complement our intimate relationship with our own domestic space.




設計工作室將其新產品分為三類:連接、感知和增強。Connect features Wedge是一款全方位揚聲器,同時結合了MagSafe可以為智能手機充電;Puck,一個帶有電源組的WiFi擴展器;Tray,一個WiFi路由器,看起來確實像一個圓形托盤和感應充電的連接表面。

The design studio has divided its new products into three categories: Connect, Sense, and Enhance. Connect features Wedge, an omnidirectional speaker with integrated MagSafe charging for smartphones; Puck, a WiFi Booster with power bank; and Tray, a WiFi Router that looks indeed like a circular tray and sports a connective surface for induction charging.




The Sense category is a collection of sensing devices with self-explanatory names such as Eye, Ear, Nose, Switch and Surface. Eye is a lidar unit capable of tracking movement, posture, facial cues. Ear is a rotating paddle that reacts to sonic cues. Nose is a porous foamed aluminum device that records particulates and volatile impurities in the air. New Territory has imagined them as a Pendant unit, which resembles a ceiling lamp and could be installed as such.




As the name suggests, Switch is a smart gestural switch that can be programmed to control lights and other devices while simultaneously reading biometric data from the user that touches it.
Surface is a sort of rug that also provides a read of biometric data such as weight, gait, or posture by sensing them from the person who walks over it.



New Territory已經設想了增強類別的框架。這是一個智能窗框,具有一系列功能,可以改變傳感設備中常見的建筑固定裝置。增強型框架概念包括空氣槽,一個用于氣流控制的集成系統;遮陽簾,一種用于遮光或完全避光房間的集成電動遮陽簾;和燈,一個內置的LED條,增強來自窗戶的自然光。

New Territory has envisioned Frame for the Enhance category. It's a smart window frame with a series of capabilities that transform a commonplace architectural fixture in a sensing device. The enhanced frame concept includes Air Slot, a think integrated system for airflow control; Blind, an integrated motorised blind for shading or blacking out a room; and Light, a built-in LED strip that augments the natural lighting coming from the window.


NewTerritory創意總監Hugo Jamson表示:“這些產品為我們帶來了激發性,圍繞著數據和移情技術在不久的將來將在我們的生活和家庭中扮演的角色,衍生出了很多問題!!坝辛诉@些概念,我們在探索不同的顏色和紋理時,會為產品添加更人性化的元素。我們想讓這些產品感覺像具有吸引力,像是消費者想要觸摸的東西,而不是一個堅硬、無菌的設備。它們在美學上是居家的,在功能上是智能的,在概念上是人性化的!

"We're being provocative with these objects, raising questions around the role data and empathic technology will play in our lives and homes in the not-so-distant future," says Hugo Jamson, Creative Director, NewTerritory. "With these concepts, we're exploring different colourations and textures that add a more humanistic element to the products. We wanted to make the objects feel like something consumers would be drawn to and want to touch, rather than a hard, sterile device. They're domestic in their aesthetic, smart in their functionality, and humanistic in their concept".
