Abstract

The field of HCI is changing, which brings with it new responsibilities. Ubiquitous computing touches on many aspects of modern life and its consequences are not yet fully understood. In the context of dementia ubiquitous technologies are currently developed to augment care and thereby enhancing quality of life for people living with dementia as well as reducing the financial pressures on the health care system. Within this paper a design fiction is presented as a method to explore the issues that may arise from the new technologies in this context. It introduces the idea of replacing Smart Home technology with wearable solutions to observe the technologies more critically through defamiliarization and use these observations to feed back into technology design.
