The trip in Cuba inspired me to think about the problem of the extreme user-friendly technological set up which promotes efficiency. Especially when we refers to automation, we target to guide users attention to the minimal operation needs, like pressing a switch to start, or even minimize their attention to zero by embedding sensors on site. My ideal user-technology relation have to be reciprocal: the device or system has to be inviting for understanding, with attempts to show its working logic as it will leave openning for on site adjustment or inspire new ways of usage when needed, which I called WARM TECHNOLOGY.
