  • A proposed development of the internet of things, when smartdevices are no longer needed in smartphones or wearables, but become an integral part of our surroundings.

    Demos Helsinki, January 2015:

    Get Naked with Nearables


    When most objects and services have a name and a means to communicate with them, we will not need smart phones or wearables anymore. The information and communication technology becomes an integral part of our surroundings. It becomes Nearable Technology.

    It probably goes without saying that this is not a commonly used term just yet. While typing this, my autocorrect changes, quite fittingly, the word “nearable” to the word “bearable”. This is pretty much the point: calm technology is embedded in our lives so that it improves our wellbeing and capabilities without stressing us or constantly demanding our attention (Although using the Internet does not stress us – using Facebook does).

    After the widespread introduction of Nearables our world will become a different place.
