The world as imagined by Steven Spielberg

A digitally integrated built environment by designer Mac Funamizu:

Reminiscent of Minority Report.

The idea: you could latch onto a physical object with the eye of this “looking glass” mobile device and retrieve information about it, including personally relevant info (like a meeting time and place) uploaded yourself.

Reminds me of this.

For the Jardins de Métis, in Quebec, “Francis Bitoni and Andrew Zientek submitted My_SECRET[E].Garden, a program that would allow visitors to create new sections of a real garden by participating in a digital reality on their smartphones. Their proposal explains:

The interface allows visitors to choose a new species of plant, attach a secret message and then ‘plant’ it in the garden to be viewable by successive visitors. The garden grows, receiving and containing knowledge that is hidden from plain view.”
