Future Places Toolkit

Future Places Toolkit is an engagement activity that offers you the chance to imagine the future of your public realm and uses technology to bring it to life.

Using Augmented Reality (like in Pokemon GO) and devices that allow you to see and hear through time (mobile phones), you will get to experience in situ the futures you want for a specific place. As we talk and come up with ideas together, what you imagine will appear around you, drawn over the buildings of today. Our app will allow you to see options that may already be planned for the area. You can explore what these ideas would be like, how people would use them, and make changes to the Augmented Reality illustrations. Using immersive audio, you'll get to hear what your future high street or public realm might sound like.

You can watch a video demo HERE.
