SIGHT is a fantastic project by four students from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. It depicts a dystopian near-future of completely ambient, ubiquitous, and wearable computing, eerily similar to Google’s recently announced Project Glass and the standard narrative of an internet of things environment. Great work.

This is a new IoT infogrpahic currently making the rounds in the intertubes courtesy of Intel. It is a nice rhizomatic visualization of connectivity spreading into more and more devices. Interesting that the rhizome features only cars and smart meters out of all non-human associated IoT objects – I count the entire gamut of interface-rich household appliances such as smart TVs and consoles as human-centred gateways. I presume this is because these have “Intel Inside” or are related to Intel in some other way. If you add Arduino powered-objects however, the rhizome would grow exponentially [click on image for full size].
