Abstract

Nowadays, householders hear about the need to reduce their resources consumption, but they are still not really conscious about the amount of their daily usage.Studies proved that giving to householders clearly feedback can help them to be more aware about their consumptions and they can positively motivate users to not waste resources.In this context the role of the industrial designer seems to be marginal, but thanks to new materials and technologies, designers can create artifacts more attractive and fascinating for engaging users, such as designing Dynamic Products. The aim of this research is to investigate Dynamic Products as a medium for transmitting information about resources consumptions. In the first step of this study, a literature research has been performed in order to identify the characteristics of the information that have to be conveyed; in the second step those findings have been compared to previous researches on Dynamic Products for exploring advantages and limitations in this field. In this study an important role of industrial designers has been emerged, who can help users to be more aware about their consumption creating new engaging product experiences.
