HawkEye is a design fiction probe that was deployed with eight participants for three weeks. Comprising a physical control panel, HawkEye is provided by a fictional elder-care company and deployed in the participant's home. Participants take on the fictional role of an informal caregiver caring for "Annie," a person with dementia. Once the system is deployed, the participants receive messages on Annie's well-being and set parameters for the different technologies installed in her smart home. After three weeks of deployment, the participants were interviewed in order to gain insights on the use of this kind of futurist technology.
