Connect Up Finalist: Neighbornet’s Building-Based Social Network
Jawbone and PSFK showcase finalists in the Connect Up home design competition.
As part of PSFK & Jawbone‘s Connect Up design competition, we asked hackers, designers and developers to imagine how internet-enabled products could work with each other to create seamless platforms and experiences for the home. Neighbornet by Zemoga was one of the finalists, read about the designer’s vision below and see the other finalists here.
We live in apartments we call ‘home’ but barely know who lives above, below, or even next to us. Urban dwellers have never had a good way to get to know their neighbors and as the speed of our lifestyles has accelerated, there’s even less time and opportunity. This is all the more ironic considering the fact that we live in the most social, interconnected era ever, thanks to mobile and social technology.
