‘Mo’ and ‘My Futures’ @Mind the Step, DDW2017

Last week, Studiolab was well represented at the Dutch Design Week. Many research and design projects received a platform for exhibition, amongst which one could witness demonstrations of Mo or climb the ladder to consider your future.

Mo is a prototype of a hospital transportation robot that strives towards more intuitively understandable robots, by using the knowledge of Disney and Pixar about body movement and non-verbal communication. For more information, see this video.

My Futures took the opportunity to gather some data and received about 700 stories of personal futures. People were asked to imagine they would live to be a 130 years old and share the new possibilities that came to mind. The image shows what this contemplation looked like.
