Adaptative Objects: Becoming Friends is a research project on seamless interaction by the Media Technology Research Group at La Salle Campus of Barcelona (Universitat Ramon Llull). Seamless interaction investigates the relationship between people and objects and the way humans can communicate with everyday items without necessarily having to push buttons and hit switches.

Adaptative Objects: Becoming Friends wants to leave behind interfaces and normal functionalities to go beyond the screen. The project is divided into three parts:

  • Drawit: demonstrates that from a single blank page on a tablet, users can draw usable objects and include their functionalities; i.e. launching a television that can change channels.
  • Digital Sense: gives objects a digital identity that enables communication with users. The objects “learn” about users, and when they recognize their identity, they can perform previously established actions.
  • Gaze: use your gaze to identify objects from your surroundings and transmit information to other devices.

This project is the result of the work of the university research group directed by David Miralles y Marc Antonijoan and their format for students of different grades, masters and doctorates from La Salle Campus Barcelona.

Participants: Marc Antonijoan, Quim Bertran, Marc Dabad, Marc Expósito, Ale García-Corretjer,  David Miralles, Gerard Serra y Maria Villuendas.
