SPOTfind Toronto Kioske: CONNECTING PEOPLE WITH PLACES
With the growing popularity of live media tools and outlets, companies should look for new ways to make sense of the abundance of data that is available to almost everyone.
WHAT WE FOUND
In the Toronto urban setting, we discovered that people are always looking for new venue’s, events, and people to interact with. The problem is that they are hesitant to test unfamiliar waters due to the possible failure of an experience. Some may lack the money, while others may lack the time and patience to embrace a new experience.
The application and kiosk is a way for individuals to find the places, people, and events that won’t disappoint. The system works by gathering info. from city venue’s, and offering users a abstract image, audio feedback, and other relevant information including price, size, and current population of reccommended places. Also prompts the user with a number of quick questions about personal preference, budget, distance, transportation etc. so the system can identify the best matches. The size and shape of the kiosk on the left, was designed so that multiple users could interact with it.
