Product development for the Internet of Things (IoT) is often pushed by advances in technology rather than human needs.
The Tiles project develops methods and tools to design an build IoT products centered on human drives and desires.
Tiles Design Tools support brainstorming how to use IoT tech to design everyday things that are more useful, playful or engaging than their ordinary selves. Tiles Technology Tools enables idea exploration with rapid prototyping, providing sensors stickers and software tools to augment everyday objects with computer interactivity.
Our toolbox involves non-experts such as corporate employees, makers, artists and kids with design and making activities to create their own IoT solutions.
Tiles is a research project at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. Get in contact.
