Product description

Review

"David Rose's vision for enchanted objects and their platforms is spot on. With this book, he offers innovators and businesses a convincing guide for success in this space."--Glenn Lurie, President, Emerging Enterprises and Partnerships, AT&T Mobility

Beyond the internet of things we find the internet of enchanted objects, a medium designed for pre-attentive cognition, conveying information subliminally and delightfully. I highly recommend this book. It is filled with evocative examples that will influence our imagination and help us move beyond our fixation on the screen. --John Seely Brown, former chief scientist, Xerox, and visiting scholar at the University ofSouthern California"

David Rose does not predict. He extrapolates the future from personal experience and technical fluency. His balance between a romantic humanism and scientific destiny is unique. His storytelling is intellectually rich, laced with history and never pedantic. "Enchanted Objects" is a truly enlightening read. --Nicholas Negroponte, Professor and Co-Founder, MIT Media Lab; author of Being Digital; a founder of WiReD Magazine"

"David Rose has written a spectacular book. While glass slabs have already entered every nook and cranny of our lives, Rose paints a much more compelling future where we are deeply engaged with enchanted objects. Rose's vision of human computer interaction is more exciting and persuasive than the current norm and this brilliant book gives us a road map for how to get there. While I'll continue to invest in many things that improve our glass slab world, I believe that the future is enchanted objects."--Brad Feld, Managing Director at Foundry Group

Format: Paperback
This is an incredibly inspiring book if you're interested in the real potential of "the internet of things". Not just lights that you can control from your phone, but the creation of things that are truly magical. It changed my perspective on the whole movement and the excitement has stuck with me for months. It could use a few more examples for sure; that would have given it the fifth star. Otherwise great.

seems to go on about how big companies are flogging us all more screens at the expense of progress. I guess those MIT guys can't get funding to research mobile apps. that's what Apple and Google do ! To me as a techy. my phone IS an enchanted object ! Interesting read though.
