Engage-Stage 3 Electrolux Competition, 2015

Engage is a device connected to a cloud system providing activities, grocery shopping and social sharing. The activities provided by the device are to a great extent based on augmented reality and with the device comes augmented reality-glasses and a multi tool that can be stored and charged inside the main device. The device itself is similar to a tablet PC but is a bit more rigid to sustain an environment with water, spill and eventual incautious use by children. The augmented reality glasses contains a camera that will 3dscan the environment. It also sends it location to the main device. On the multitool there is a knob that can be detached and attached to any kitchen tool or even the sleeves of your sweater using a nano structure surface inspired by the gecko lizard. The same technology is used on mobile phone holders in cars. The knob can also send information about its position and in this way the main device knows where some effects should be added in the augmented reality.

The greatest source of inspiration to this project is the insights about what is vital for growing healthy happy kids. Children are individuals and everyone is different. Though there are some general aspects that scientifically are proven to be common in terms of raising a happy and healthy child. Engage is based on these principals and in short it can be described as teaching the children optimism, encourage them to initiate relations and develop healthy habits, practice self-discipline and to praise their effort rather than judging their achievements.


Engage will bring the family together and help them to develop healthy and happy habits with main purpose of strengthening the children’s well-being. It will encourage the children to take part in kitchen activities where they will learn and develop with guidance from their parents. The parents will get a more distinct parent role and the children will continuously improve and grow to strong individuals. It will turn the daily tasks into quality time together with the family.

a key piece from the royal academy showcase is ‘straight, 2009-12′, visualized as a terrain of carefully arranged steel rods in which the artist collected from the devastating wreckage caused by the 2008 sichuan earthquake. the empathetic installation is a homage to the victims where the bars signify a landscape and were re-straightened for the piece.
