This object is based on sound waves. As designers we need to address networks and wireless devices becoming pervasive in our environment. To do so, we can create objects that speak of these physical events that are not visual. With our tools we are able to create metaphors of what it could look like and thus create objects that have a deeper understanding of our technology, in this case a wireless speaker that is connected through a bluetooth network.
The technological plane is an abstraction: in ordinary life we are practically unconscious of the technological reality of objects. Yet this abstraction is profoundly real: it is what governs all radical transformations of our environment…it is starting from this language, from this consistency of the technical model, that we can reach an understanding of what happens to objects by virtue of their being produced and consumed, possessed and personalized.
