ABSTRACT
The Domisilica project is exploring future computing envi-
ronments centered around the home. We envision a future
in which objects in the home, such as appliances and rooms,
are enhanced with computational capabilities that make them
accessible away from the home. Our approach has been to
add computational power to real world objects located in the
home, and to provide a centralized model of the home which
can be used to integrate a wide variety of services and is
accessible remotely. This paper focuses on issues of inter-

Domisilica. These include extending the affordances of real
