Created by ECAL's past and present students, DRM Chair provides a limited number of use before it self-destructs. A small sensor detects when someone sits and decrements a counter. Every time someone stands up, the chair knocks a number of time to signal how many uses are left. When reaching zero, the self-destruct system is turned on and the structural joints of the chair are melted.
Created by Giulio Barresi at ECAL (Media and Interaction Design Unit), Connected Tools is a series of objects that explore alternative rituals that could lead to a more reasonable consumption of mobile technologies.
