We are now standing at the precipice of the next transformative development: the Internet of Things. Soon, connected technology will be embedded in hundreds of everyday objects we already use: our cars, wallets, watches, umbrellas, even our trash cans. These objects will respond to our needs, come to know us, and learn to think on our behalf. David Rose calls these devices--which are just beginning to creep into the marketplace--Enchanted Objects. Some believe the future will look like more of the same--more smartphones, tablets, screens embedded in every conceivable surface. Rose has a different vision: technology that atomizes, combining itself with the objects that make up the very fabric of daily living. Such technology will be woven into the background of our environment, enhancing human relationships and channeling desires for omniscience, long life, and creative expression. The enchanted objects of fairy tales and science fiction will enter real life. Groundbreaking, timely, and provocative, Enchanted Objects is a blueprint for a better future, where efficient solutions come hand in hand with technology that delights our senses.... 91a92 mutual presence, 93a95 Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, 65a66 MyFoodPhone, 119, 120 My MacBook Pro, 254 mythology, 9, 47, 63 ... 235 NextBus, 241a43 Nike, 53, 58, 63 Nike FuelBand, 126, 168, 186 Nike+, 63, 125, 126, 201 noise-cancellation technology, 25, 89 ... 76 Orpheusa#39;s lyre, 144a45, 147 OTA (over-the-air) updating, 55a56 Outram, Christine, 238 Oz, Mehmet, 125 Ozawa, Seiji, 161a62anbsp;...
