Our work, funded by EP/R032750/1, looks to capture the benefits of the IoT future while making it sustainable, delightful and universally accessible. We will ambitiously drive development for will consist of: a highly novel interactive IoT material that has been evaluated from a technical, human performance and in-the-wild, deployment perspective; a generative design space; and, a case-study community that demonstrates and drives growth in co-creation and cross-disciplinarity of at-scale material and HCI science. As the project unfolds we will use this website for updates on our work, and our findings. For more information, see the Vision page.
