Design is a discipline which not only generates material realities but also fulfils a communicative function. It creates something new as well as makes objects visible and intelligible and facilitates the communication process through the messages these new objects contains. The incorporation of new technologies has generated the dematerialization of high technological developed objects, understanding this concept as the lose of the value they have. Because of the miniaturization, their materiality cost is lower in contraposition to the big technological load they have, producing new communication criteria between these objects and the user. The general objective of this investigation is to decipher the language used by these new objects to communicate and understand the reading of a great quantity of information through a decreasing materiality.
