Ambient interfaces dedicated to the awareness of energy consumption
Participants: Pierre-Antoine Cinquin, Philippe Giraudeau
Inspired by studies in data physicalization, we explore the use of tangible and ambient interfaces to raise people's awareness of energy consumption. As a first approach, we are developing an interactive and collaborative environment named Erlen. This year, we have designed a first prototype taking the form of an Erlenmeyer flask with fluid simulation. Through manipulation, users can visualize information about their electricity consumption. This prototype was demonstrated at IHM 2018 . Based on the feedback we obtained, we are actually developing a new set of individuals and shared interfaces along with new interactions.
