• » Urban Mood: Social connections in an interactive city

    As a need to create stronger social connections is an ever increasing issue, a way to check what others feel seems to be a potential step in the right direction. And we don't have to focus on obvious signs like face expressions.  Instead, we can perhaps choose a more subtle and discreet method. Maybe it is possible to go for small things we have never even considered, like little unconscious gestures capable of revealing a person's mood. We might not be aware that we can actually collect data based on those gestures and yet such information could foster improved integration between urban space and its inhabitants towards a better life in the city. Using the microTact sensor by studio NAND we can check how people behave, how they touch things in the city and how they interact with architecture and urban space. Can we also check how they feel?
