Back to the Future – Introduction
Back to the Future is a housing project in which I propose that in 2050, designers combine traditional house style with smart technology to improve space flexibility in the context of the post-pandemic situation and show the impact of the result. The outcome is presented in two periods. One is the presented idea home in 2050. Another will show scenes depicting the impact of this technology on residents’ interiors in ten years.
IMAGINHOME presented a new project named Back to the Future project in 2050. The BTTF control system allows residents to re-organize their housing’s functional division as they like. These systems are controlled by a mobile app, which is very convenient and easy to understand. Inspired by the illustrations of William Heath Robinson, the residential project developed the concept of a pulley power system that maximizes space utilization as an indoor movement structure to make life more comfortable for residents.
However, consumers should still be cautious before putting their faith in any technology. Because with the technology comes future concerns: Will this technology is safe enough? Will people figure out how to use it properly?
Therefore, I presented the scene of hackers breaking into the system and disrupting the lives of residents in 2060 to draw the audience’s attention to this privacy issue. If we consciously try to make some changes, maybe this kind of panic situation will not happen in the future.
2060‘s Scenario -The Hacker's Monologue
Five years ago, I was an employee of BTTF Control System. I have fired a few days ago over some minor incident. I hate this company. I hate everything about BTTF. I learned the code to hack into customers' accounts in order to bring this company down. I'm going to flip the floor up and down while someone else mops it. I'm going to move it while someone's leaning against the wall. I know that recently the company is still developing the BttF system, trying to change the indoor temperature, but I can also turn it on at inappropriate times. I'm going to make a mess of this system. Can't wait to see the bad reviews on the website!
