Wearables, smart homes, smart objects, Internet of Things are slowly entering our daily life. New technologies controls people’s lifestyle, guide us every day and optimize everything we do. Are we, humans, ready to live under the rule of digital solutions?
Thomas, aged 70, lives on his own after his wife died last year. His children send him smart devices to track and monitor his diet, health and sleep from a distance. But Thomas has always been fiercely independent, happy to live in an organized mess. He struggles with the order and rules imposed on him by the objects that are meant to make his life easier. In a world where “smart objects” will increasingly be used to provide care at a distance, how will we live with these uninvited guests?
