Artefacts: Personal Aura

  • With the development of the Personal Aura Artefact we focus on the design of an easy and intuitive user interface for recurring changes of personal profiles.


  • The purpose of the PA Artefact is to put the user in control of their appearance in a smart environment. The Personal Aura enables individuals to decide whether they are “visible” for a tracking system and in which “social role” they want to appear. At the same time the PA Artefact aims at enhancing the user’s awareness for tracking and identification events by giving optical and acoustic feedback.
