For Carla Diana interaction design is about bringing about intuition with our physical objects. For her this means moving beyond the black rectangle of industrial design. Diana remarks that now we are entering what she calls the perfect storm of interaction design made available by advances in robotics, affordable sensors, object tagging, wireless communications, and broadband internet connectivity.
Carla Diana is a creative professional who tries to live as close to the near future as possible. As Associate Director of Interaction Design at Smart Design, her projects include domestic robots, mobile devices, and sentient kitchen appliances.

In addition, Diana maintains an independent practice which includes a line of digitally distributed furniture, a series of sound-based sculptural installations and a selection of pieces that are best described as dynamic "virtual objects."

Interaction design for Diana is about bringing about intuition with our physical objects. For her this means moving beyond the black rectangle of industrial design.

Speaking at the recent TEDxEmory event, Diana explored design implications for the internet of things.

The Story of the Chessboard


The classic parable of how the inventor of the game of chess used his knowledge of exponential growth to trick an emperor is commonly used to explain the staggering and accelerating growth of technology. The 33rd square on the chessboards represents the first step into the second half of the chessboard, where exponential growth takes off.

33rd Square explores technological progress in AI, robotics, genomics, neuroscience, nanotechnology, art, design and the future as humanity encroaches on The Singularity.
