    Welcome to this first log entry !

    I started to work on this project a couple of months ago. It’s a self-initiated project that I will submit  for my upcoming degree in industrial design. First, I found my topic and researched it to cover its different stakes. I was born with computers. I’ve always found it easy to work with different types of technology. That’s why I decided to develop a project in this field.

    When it comes to everyday use, I'm not convinced that the way we interact with technology is the best. I noticed that my daily consumption of tech is limited to my phone or my computer. Many tasks are done with these devices: staying in contact with friends or work partners, takings notes, quickly finding informations about anything, making calculations, navigating in a city, capturing memories, reminding us upcoming events, etc. They suit our needs when we have to be efficient but when we just want to relax and disconnect, they can become nightmares.
