Reality Editor

The internet of things has made it easy to control inanimate objects; MIT Media Lab’s Reality Editor takes the concept even further. Physical items built with the Open Hybrid platform—which, on the surface, looks like a cross between a maze and a QR code—can be instantly connected and commanded with a mobile app. Imagine pointing your phone at a desk lamp and tapping the screen to turn it on, an action that also adjusts your office chair to the proper height. When you leave the room, everything powers down.
