The open source home


HA_NL_JASMINAIn Egeo street, in Turin, you breath an innovation air. In the spaces of Toolbox Coworking, which already houses Fablab Torino and Officine Arduino, was born in fact Jasmina home, only example of ‘connected’ and open-source flat.

Jasmina home represents an incubator of ideas and a space of comparison for the experimentations of makers, designers and companies in the field of Internet of Things: a new paradigm that provides for the multiplication of smart objects that, connecting one another to exchange information, make our lives easier and more efficient. The flat, which in the next few months will be the venue of a programme of residences, workshops and talks, intends to be an accessible space for whoever wants to live future home technologies in daily life. Jasmina home will be in fact soon available on AirBnb for whoever is going to spend a ‘futuristic’ weekend in Turin.

Among IoT projects on show, there are household appliances (supplied by the Energy@home Consortium) and other prototypes of designers and makers who have joined the call for projects, together with other IoT artworks coming from the collection of Share Festival.

Jasmina home is a project cared by Bruce Sterling and Massimo Banzi, with the support of Arduino.
