From the series 'Love, Optimized'
Now that you are fully merged with your partner, the daily grind dulls the spark of your young love. Quality time together is lost to looming deadlines and domestic logistics. Your smart home is ever-improving, but what to do within its walls without the intimate connection you once knew?
↑ No love, no power.
With the Intimatum (Intimate Utility Meter) your smart home becomes a stakeholder in your ongoing romance. The system administers your home services—from high-speed internet to basic drinking water—granting their access based on your intimacy frequency with your partner. Abundance of intimacy brings continuous utilities. Absence risks gradual shutdown.
As a rule of thumb, the energy you give unto one another is the energy you get back from the home. Any level of intimate connection—a deep conversation, a kiss gone longer than expected—is tracked and rewarded points based on the energy generated. Simple sensors worn at the heart retrieve these energy points. Your sensors read the length of your togetherness, the upswing of your body heat, the escalation of your pulse.
Transfer your energy points to the Intimatum to authorize consumption of your wealth of resources. Press your sensor onto the central module, thus physically embracing the system. Then feel the breezy revival of your air conditioner, observe your light bulbs aglow. The complete exchange is a win-win-win.
