Uninvited GuestsSpeculative Design
The short film by Superflux explores the frictions between an old man and his smart devices.
The film explores the issues of creating technologies without much regard for their human impact. It shows a failed attempt of technology to impose its rules on the user, creating a situation in which the user has to work around it to restore the status quo.
It is an interesting exploration of a failure of human-centric design to remain human-centric; more interestingly, however, it is a great example of a hightech solution being grounded in a mundane setting, employing low tech solutions to new issues that the high-tech has generated.
