Objects of presence

The connected home is a space composed of human ecologies integrating interactions with various data sensors and technological devices. In this context, how can an object that moves, expresses itself through movement in order to energise exchanges, while resonating with the general state of the house?

Yōkobo, an object that is understood through perception, and touches the poetic sensibility of everyone


Based on the notions of “robjet” (robotic everyday object) and “object with behaviour” (object that has its own behaviours giving the impression that it has intentions), Yōkobo was imagined and designed in the framework of a multidisciplinary research to reinforce the attachment between two people, at the crossroads of a sensitive approach and a robotics that makes the link between humans.

Through its expressiveness, it offers to be a conveyor of presence in the relationship between two people. Yōkobo is an object that is understood through perception, and touches the poetic sensibility of each person.

It is a research object that questions the contribution of the sensitive through movement in technological objects, and the meaning it brings to the everyday.
