Reconfigurable House 2.0
The Reconfigurable House is an environment constructed from thousands of low tech components that can be "rewired" by visitors. The project is a critique of ubiquitous computing "smart homes", which are based on the idea that technology should be invisible to prevent DIY.
Built with thousands of hacked toys and gadgets, controlled by Arduino and Processing.
Reconfigurable House 2.0 was built for the Place@Space exhibition at Z33, Hasselt, Belgium.
The Reconfigurable House team consists of:
Usman Haque (UK), Ai Hasegawa (JP), Barbara Jasinowicz (PL), Gabor Papp (HU), Bengt Sjolen (SE), Adam Somlai-Fischer (HU), Tamas Szakal (HU). The house builds on work by the reorient.hu team.
