Smart objects and Internet of Things have become increasingly prevalent but expand without standard. Connected to the Internet but used as only as input devices, objects don’t take advantage of this network to adapt their functionalities to users environment and digital life but behave in a predefined way, determined by the manufacturer.

ArLive explores a new approach in which users interact with all connected objects through explicit and simple programmable behavior, transforming the multitude of decentralized applications to one unique application. To give back customization capabilities to the user, we have implemented a visual-based programming feature.

This allows the link of digital life to physical objects and provides ambient notifications within their environment. This research focuses on the ability of these smart objects to communicate their functionalities in order to operate real-time modifications thanks to an Augmented Reality see-through interface. It also deals with usage of connected devices and how ArLive help us living within a connected environment.
