Randomizing the physical environment?

March 15, 2010 at 3:54 pm 1 comment

When ordering a sub sandwich today for lunch, I found myself wondering if there was any honest way that I could randomize my order. Some way for me to input my favorite toppings and just see what pops out each time – a la iPod’s Shuffle feature or Genius playlists. Then I started thinking about what would happen if my closet could do that (i.e. mix up amazing outfits for me each day). Or if my apartment could layout my furniture randomly on its own. We already have randomized options for viewing pictures on Flikr and entries on Wikipedia, and then of course there is the randomization of online interaction with ChatRoulette. Could this randomization eventually seep beyond our audio-visual/digital platforms and into our physical environments?

March 15’s daily design idea is think about what physical aspect of your everyday life you would want to have randomized. If you’re really ambitious, try thinking about how you would actually execute it. I personally got too carried away by just thinking about the abstract possibilities.
