Enchanted Objects

David Rose, an inventor and a MIT Media Lab professor wrote a book on enchanted objects. In the book, he gives glimpses of future through designs:

Some believe the future will look like more of the same—more smartphones, tablets, screens embedded in every conceivable surface. David Rose has a different vision: technology that atomizes, combining itself with the objects that make up the very fabric of daily living. The Enchanted Objects of fairy tales and science fiction will enter real life.

Enchanted objects are in certain ways ritualistic, giving the opportunity to the users to feel the magic and mystery within the mundane.
