ABSTRACT
The transformation of material objects into intelligent, information-rich ones holds great promise for fruitful partnerships between humans and technology. However, new opportunities also bring new challenges. It behooves us to examine how these new objects impact humans so that we can thoughtfully engineer systems that are mindful of our social practices—sidestepping potentially troubling outcomes and creating technologies worth having. This department is part of a special issue on physical computing and shape-changing interfaces.
