We live in a world where everything seems
possible and as a consequence have lost
the sense of wonder.

Preckam Most :: Crossing the Bridge, Interaction Design
Workshop, Magdalena Festival, Slovenia (2009).
An intervention that sought to slow
down people’s journeys, to view the
mundane and familiar in fresh ways.
Crossing the bridge became a different experience.
The act of taking photographs altered perspectives

Urban Interaction Design
The UrbanIxD EU project is
about Research and Design
for the point of contact
between people and urban
It has adopted an explicitly
‘design inspired’ method for
the exploration of interaction
in future hybrid cities.
Aurora, the Aura City
Now it is 2113 and this is our second wave of hope.
Wearing our new technologies, we have achieved
ultimate connectivity: we enjoy augmented
experiences as long as we sync our senses with
others in proximity. Sharing visual data requires that
people look in each other's eyes; sharing feelings
can only occur if people actually touch.

How will we derive meaning from data and how
will those meanings inform our subsequent
decisions - urban interaction design
What are the products and services that
citizens of the near future will use to create
and consume data in the Hybrid City?
