BERG and Ericsson’s User Experience Lab have been working together to explore networks and smart products. One concept they have developed is a router that displays its path when delivering data so the user can see real-time visualizations. They modified a standard router and added a screen on top “to make network activity at various scales visible and actionable at the point at which it reaches the house.” Take a look at the concept router in the video below:
