    Meet Steve. !

    He rented a bitchin (cool) Camaro.

  • Kendra Shimmell at Fluxible 2014 Kendra Shimmell 2014 | Interaction 14 South America

    Last summer, I rented a car for a business trip. !They rented me this brand new black Camaro Z 1. I thought it was cool. !When I turned the car on and started driving, this head up display appeared on the windshield. It projects the speedometer reading on the windshield. It looked like a hologram. Very cool! I was FEELING GOOD about my rental car. !Then I turned on the Satellite radio so I could play some music, and all of a sudden an advertisement comes on the radio for Supercuts (a hair salon).

    What was unusual is that the speedometer on the windshield display all of a sudden shrinks down a little bit and the display scrolls the phone number #1-800-SUPERCUTS (on the windshield). !I wasnt stopped, I was DRIVING. I thought, Wow, this is a new low in advertising. !! Kendra Shimmell 2014 | Interaction 14 South America

    How did the experience make Steve feel?

  • Kendra Shimmell at Fluxible 2014 Kendra Shimmell 2014 | Interaction 14 South America

    How did it make me feel?I guess that I felt kind of dupped (tricked). !Im driving this futuristic cara bitchin (cool) CamaroIve got the speedometer projected in front of me like a hologram. !It is supposed to be there to make me safer. !It isnt like I wrapped my car around a pole, but when the advertisements started showing up, it really was DISTRACTING. It made me think about this (situation), and I got kind of MAD! !It seemed like it was doing the complete opposite of what it was supposed to do.

    An exaggerated sense of self-importance

    Lack in empathy and sensitivity to others circumstances

    Expects others to go through with his ideas and plans

    Requires constant admiration

    Often monopolizes conversations

    But, we wouldnt intentionally hang out with this guy, right? Right?!

  • Kendra Shimmell at Fluxible 2014 Kendra Shimmell 2014 | Interaction 14 South America

    A narcissistic product puts its own interests in front of the interests of the people that use it. These products typically demand attention disproportionate to the job we hired them to do.

    The most common fear was about connected appliances becoming too high maintenance.

  • Kendra Shimmell at Fluxible 2014 Kendra Shimmell 2014 | Interaction 14 South America

    I saw an ad for a refrigerator that had Wi-Fi for recipes. But then it also connected to Twitter. I was TERRIFIED! The last thing I need is to receive updates from my refrigerator.
