Alphie can be attach to any object you interact with, then it understands your behaviour, and shares its observations with you. It is an open and modular system of sensors.

IDEO is that superstar design consultancy that uses human-centered approaches to help companies innovate. It was pre-set-up in 70s by Bill Moggridge, a guy who designed one of the first laptops, coined the term *interaction design*, and injected human factors into design of computers, and tech tools that have fundamentally changed our daily routines.
