Living interfaces: the thrifty faucet
In this paper, we present a novel type of persuasive home appliance: A thrifty water faucet. Through a servo motor construction, it is enabled to move and behave in life-like manners and to step into dialogue with the user. For example about water consumption or hygiene. We sought to research the reactions of users to such an appliance, alongside possible implications for the design of future human-machine interfaces. This project is part of a larger series of experiments in the Living Interfaces project, exploring ways in which reduced ract life-like movements can be beneficial for Human-Machine Interaction.
