Matt Jones recently offered up a remarkable idea he calls “Mujicomp” at the New Digital Spaces Conference.

He said that in order for it to be successful, ubiquitous computing components need to become tasteful, sexy and desirable rather than just being another bit of “technology”.  Jones believes that these connected devices will have to take on the forms of well designed objects that will be invited into people’s lives, similar to the Muji line of products.

He goes on to say that designers and engineers need to build the smart, sentient city from the bottom up (using such Mujicomp devices) rather than wait for a never-arriving, top-down infrastructure.
