Lifestyle, a new boundary in spaces

Morph is a user-tracking, assistive spatial service aimed to aid the digital-based lifestyle of Phono-Sapiens Generation Z. Morph suggests a way to utilize a fixed, hardware home in a more 'software' way, by reflecting our own variable digital lifestyles. Through Morph, the home of Generation Z is no longer a fixed, standardized space, but a freer platform that adjusts itself to the user.
Phono-Sapiens' guide to using a space.

The 'Phono-sapiens' do everything with their smartphones and use them as the extension of their bodies. They don't make distinctions between online and offline worlds but see the world as one hyper-connected ecosystem. Digital network has been a part of their world since they were born and has become their reality and lifestyle. Their houses are no exception. They browse their house with digital devices in their hands and use the limited space in a flexible, diverse way.
The Phono-Sapiens' use of home resembles their use of mobile devices. On a wide wallpaper called home, like applications, your habitual actions are activated, deleted, and re-downloaded. Just like decorating your wallpaper and sorting and foldering files at your convenience, we change the locations of furnitures, seperate the limited space with new interior decorations, and use our space with our own rules in accordance with our lifestyle. Just as in a small studio, your bed could be your office or a dest could be a dining table.

In what context did Phono-Sapiens Generation Z's use of space appear?
We perceive a space as a platform.

Phono-Sapiens Generation Z also thinks of home as another platform. According to a 'platformization of space' theory, their house is like another blank mobile screen. Since they perceive the physical space of the home as a digital platform, they tend to think it is also possible to customize a space just as they customize the mobile environment to their convenience and habits. Like this, the Phono-Sapiens individuals think of houses as platforms, and the 'home' they want is no longer a fixated space where they should try to fit themselves to the standard. They want a digital-based home with 'software' traits, which can respond flexibly according to their quickly shifting rhythms and flows.
Beyond physical limitations, as if a personalized software is installed for me.

However, being connected to a house as Phono-Sapiens Generation Z wishes for is still not easy. Although we move furniture in different directions and separate the space, there are still physical limitations. Furthermore, space changes after our lifestyle, not the other way around. To use the home perfectly as a platform, 'software use' of the space should be made possible, where you can control the space for your situational needs just like installing and uninstalling services in an empty space.
A space paired with your digital lifestyle

    How to use your home as a mobile platform.

Your home paired with your digital ecosystem.

Integrate your digital devices like mobile phones, laptops, or desktops with Morph, and connect the apps, frequently visited sites, and modes from the previous devices with it. By tracking the digital data of the devices, Morph assists subtle changes in the mode.

Morph finds out what kinds of services you use and how you use them on Zone and provides a maximized digital connection and conversion experience by assisting the devices you are using, as well as nearby devices. This is more than just turning on and off your home appliances.
Creating the Zone with your own rules.

Your house is scanned through a LiDAR sensor and is saved on Morph. The Zone defines a space in a narrower radius based on where you are, what you frequently use, and how you move, not by following the definition of rooms in which they are strictly defined in a chart as a bedroom or a computer room. Now that you have built your area, let's set which IoT devices you are going to use. Your Zone, together with previously integrated digital data, is used as a Trigger so that Morph perceives your subtle change of modes.
Setting Preset, a shortcut in spaces

Preset is a combination of digital modes and the surrounding IoT value that Morph will control after recognizing the Trigger. After learning the frequently used places, services, and actions with Generation Z's way of manipulating and redefining spaces, Morph helps the house to consistently change itself according to the user's change.
Morph reflects the Phono-Sapiens Generation Z's constantly changing digital mode. Rather than simply changing the IoT environment of the house, it comprehensively controls the devices in use and provides a maximized digital ecosystem connection and conversion experience.

Morph, a spatial assistant that knows you better.

Products of Morph track the users in the house. They consist of two types: the wall-mounted type that controls the IoT in the house and the portable type.
Morph analyzes the space.

The wall-mounted type scans the entire space with a LiDAR sensor and tracks the user's location and moves.
The portable type analyzes microscopic gestures that the previous product missed, through a camera.
The assistant that notices the user's microscopic gestures.

Through a lighting function, Morph gives you notifications about the current mode, the changes between the modes, and what the product is currently doing. The two types of products are linked to each other, transferring sounds to maximize the mode-changing experience.
Morph provides a natural mode changing based on various digital and action input sources but also allows you to have fun by changing the mode with physical manipulations, just like you use the pull-to-refresh function on applications.
Easily turn off the tracking function.

Users can turn off the camera whenever they don't want to be tracked through a sensor in the camera.

    Next Home Experience with Morph
  • [04]
A flexible house that is consistently updated to your lifestyle.

Until now, our houses have not been compatible with Phono-Sapiens's 'software' way of using spaces, for our previous houses were not closely connected to a digital lifestyle. Morph allows Phono-Sapiens Generation Z's mode conversion experience to be realized visually and audibly, even in a 'hardware' space called home. Through Morph, the definition of home will change into a 'software' place that reflects Generation Z's variable and free digital lifestyles.
