Creators are looking for volunteers to "shack up" in the "smart shack".

The makers of the iPhone can track users locations, now the makers of the iSpace hope their location can "track" its users.

Researchers at the University of Essex in England, are looking for volunteers to crash their smart pad.   The end goal?  To program the perfect house that anticipates your wants and needs. 

The iSpace smart apartment or "intelligent dorm" is a two-bedroom "laboratory in disguise" that is designed to monitor and adapt to learn what users expect through various applications. 

According to the iSpace web page and Greenbang.com, the system relies on "ambient intelligence" which lets technology "learn" from user behavior.

It is equipped with sensors and other devices housed within an infra-structure of specially constructed walls that are hidden from view.

The "intelligent gadgets" communicate autonomously with each other and adjusts to make changes to the environment through remote networks. 

Scientists want to test the system of gadgets to explore ways to enhance human-technology relationships.

On the Intelligent Environment Group web page, the technology is described as "many visible and invisible computing devices all working together in providing anytime, anywhere support to end users while also ensuring a perfect symbiosis between humans and computers through Calm Computing".

Earlier this year, as part of a European Union program called "Adaptive and Trusted Ambient Ecologies" (ATRACO), the Intelligent Environment Group, part of the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at the University of Essex,
asked volunteers to pretend that the iSpace was their home and were asked to talk about their experiences.

Researchers are now looking for volunteers to hang out for up to four, two-hour sessions in the iSpace between August and December of this year.
