What are Lab Hacks ?

Lab hacks refers to Gordon Meyer’s book, entitled “Smart Home Hacks” [1]. Hacks is typical of some kind of creativity, an unplanned way to use the technology by expert people, motivated by the customization of its living space.

Domus, as a living space conceived to have a high density of technology, has been “hacked” by its developers, in order to integrate, in silico, daily routines to this intelligent space.

These developments are really ponctual, and minor. But, all together, they attest a form of ownership of the space by the residents. As a whole, they deserve this page.
