We are looking to improve the experience of MRT users. As we are still deciding on our specific idea we have separated our ideas into the various scenarios we could work around.
Platform – gameplay to fill waiting time – on windows/doors/floors/walls
Stairs – encourage use/gameplay – entice with cheaper fare and swipe halfway up
Corridors – immersive environment, activate space – make empty Read more →
Problem: It can be dangerous for pedestrians when sharing footpaths with cyclists and personal mobility device users.
Solution: Augmented Reality Pavements
Augmented reality in the future may provide information on-the-go but this could at times be distracting and lead to accidents. This project seeks to conceptualize a more clutter free experience with a focus on features to keep pedestrians safe when walking along Read more →
