设计工作室New Territory研究了如何将同理心引入智能家居
Design studio New Territory has studied how to bring empathy into smart homes


移情技术(Empathic Technology)是一系列概念的集合,旨在探索物联网产品如何“以非传统但有意义的方式”嵌入我们的生活空间。

总部位于伦敦的New Territory发布了一系列新概念,探索如何以新颖且以人为本的方式设计智能家居产品。我们的目标是响应不断发展的家居理念,使用面向未来的设备和智能建筑装置,更好地补充我们与家庭空间的亲密关系。

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.




设计工作室将其新产品分为三类:连接、感知和增强。Connect features Wedge是一款全方位扬声器,同时结合了MagSafe可以为智能手机充电;Puck,一个带有电源组的WiFi扩展器;Tray,一个WiFi路由器,看起来确实像一个圆形托盘和感应充电的连接表面。

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已经设想了增强类别的框架。这是一个智能窗框,具有一系列功能,可以改变传感设备中常见的建筑固定装置。增强型框架概念包括空气槽,一个用于气流控制的集成系统;遮阳帘,一种用于遮光或完全避光房间的集成电动遮阳帘;和灯,一个内置的LED条,增强来自窗户的自然光。

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创意总监Hugo Jamson表示:“这些产品为我们带来了激发性,围绕着数据和移情技术在不久的将来将在我们的生活和家庭中扮演的角色,衍生出了很多问题。”。“有了这些概念,我们在探索不同的颜色和纹理时,会为产品添加更人性化的元素。我们想让这些产品感觉像具有吸引力,像是消费者想要触摸的东西,而不是一个坚硬、无菌的设备。它们在美学上是居家的,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".
