Abstract

The use of dedicated devices may insufficiently support the variety and subtlety of domestic arrangements: they usually focus on specific aspects (e.g., home automation, health, safety, etc.) and potentially become obsolete, since they are unable to be recomposed and adapted to the needs of new situations. Open-ended and repurposable technologies could better address domestic users' needs. We present T4Tags 2.0, an open-ended toolkit for programming tangible tokens that embed different sensing technologies and can be attached to ordinary objects to create smart behaviors at home. We report findings from a one-day workshop we carried out to explore opportunities of the toolkit.
