“Enchanted Objects: Design, Human Desire, and the Internet of Things”

MIT Media Lab scientist David Rose calls the connected devices in the Internet of Things “enchanted objects” — technologies that previously have only existed in fairy tales and science fiction. Smart watches, cars, trash cans, and hundreds of other common objects will soon be embedded in a network that Rose argues serves to enhance human relationships and ignite the desires for longevity, creativity, and omniscience. Enchanted Objects: Design, Human Desire, and the Internet of Things serves as a blueprint for a connected future, where the Internet of Things offers both technological efficiency and fulfillment of human desires.

David Rose is an entrepreneur, instructor at the MIT Media Lab, and CEO of Ditto Labs.
