How would it feel to be an object in a smart home? As smart technology becomes more integrated into our daily lives, the role of objects changes with our expectations. The objects begin to create a life for themselves in their own relationship dynamics. Automato.farm, a speculative design group has developed an experience for people to embody the daily life of an object. This can be a way for people to anticipate our object’s changing needs and potentially design for them.

The project is called “Objective Realities,” a VR experience that tells the story of life from the perspective of a Roomba, a fan, and a plug. The experience allows people to see and act in the dynamic of a virtual smart home. The unique perspectives reveal the conversations, benefits, and drawbacks of life as an object. This project’s playful and provocative contradiction to human-centered design switches the dynamic of humans and machines.

What if object empathy manipulated our human experience to feel and act like machines?
