If Alice arrives, then wonderhome incites

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


    The science fiction prototype 'Alice's incitements in Wonderhome' introduces an intelligent home for the aged that provide motivational and personalized activities, assistance, and memory support. The prototype is based on two intelligent environment research studies: 1) a study that constructed a do-it-yourself creation and configuring tool into a nursing home environment, and 2) a study that aimed at finding means for seniors to compose their memoirs. The science-fiction prototype highlights important results of both studies by emphasising the motivational aspects of configuring the environment. It further describes new interaction mechanisms afforded by future technologies and novel research opportunities for the cloud of things.
