An interactive living kitchen concept by Michael Harboun
Michael Harboun, a design student at Strate College, designed a conceptual and the most innovative kitchen system. Named as Living Kitchen, the kitchen physically interacts with the people there by a futuristic nanotechnology. One could, using fingers, draw shapes and bring out the wall or floor. Whenever you need a utensil or appliance like a tap, one has only to draw it on a flat surface and it reacts to form what has been designed to solid state. After use, it could put them back where they appeared.
“Now let’s imagine a world where physical objects would gain digital abilities, meaning you could change the shape of any object as you would change the contents of your smartphone,” Harboun says. “This would revolutionise our relationship with objects. An object would no longer induce a function by the way it looks. The user himself would define the functions of an object, the user becomes creator.”
Everything seems crazy but who knows? But it is also one aspect of the work of designer / developer, to create imagined before. We have to see what this concept actually assist us.
