Tools for Connected Humans

Giulio Barresi – Tools for Connected Humans

Nowadays, smartphones are seen as an extension of the human being. Both a  tool and a distraction, these devices make it difficult to focus due to a digital  overload of social interactions. The ability to interact with others without a connected  devices is fading away.  As an interaction designer, I question our actual  relationship with technology face its utterly promises to shape a better world.  In the search for space for more disconnected interactions, I designed Tools for  Connected Humans. A series of connected devices ready to help the user disconnect  from connectivity.
