the good home project
We recently exhibited our first prototype at The Good Home at the Digital Catapult Centre and at the V&A Digital Design Weekend during London Design Festival. Thanks to those who visited. If you missed us, sign up to our newsletter to hear about any future public appearances.
If you're interested in the project, sign up below and we’ll keep you posted.
The first prototype
Raincloud tells you whether it's going to rain in the next few hours near its current location.
By simply glancing across the room, you'll know what the weather will be - no need to take out your smartphone!
Raincloud is an on-going project exploring a calmer, more considered integration of technology and data in the home. Instead of requiring active interaction, we're interested in single-purpose objects providing information as part of the environment.
One of our questions is about the right amount of functionality for a single-purpose product.
We're also interested in an approach to hardware that is environmentally conscious. A circular model would decrease landfill and dormant tech products.
But, are people willing to subscribe to a piece of hardware as opposed to owning it?
