Last week, REACT's Objects Sandbox Producer Tom Metcalfe presented at the inaugural O'Reilly Solid Conference in San Francisco, a two day conference focussing on the intersection of software and hardware.

Tom's talk focussed on Objects Sandbox and the projects REACT have funded. He touched upon REACT's methodologies, philosophies and approaches. The talk itself had grown out of conversations with REACT's Research Fellow, Simon Moreton and Objects Sandbox researcher, Tim Senior and theĀ talk they had deliveredĀ in the Pervasive Media Studio.

Tom discussed how, as Internet connected-objects become more ubiquitous, it'll be increasingly important for designers and makers to collaborate with experts who best understand human behaviour, society and history.

You can read more about Tom's talk, and a full report on Solid 2014, on our Objects Sandbox Microsite.
