Cleansing your senses
Why it matters
With even toilets becoming multi-sensory experiences, what other public spaces (such as car parks/lifts/changing rooms) will be designed and run to feed the five senses?
A billboard for GranataPet in Germany actually dispenses samples. Once an individual checks in on Foursquare the dispenser provides a sample of dog food.
At Bloomingdale’s in New York City, passers-by can try sunglasses virtually right from the street. The store has set-up an LCD monitor in its shop window with an interactive display. Shoppers simply need to align their faces and eyes to circles on the screen to see what they would look like with certain pairs of eyewear.
If the shopper finds a pair of sunglasses they like, they simply click ‘print’ which sends a picture of themselves wearing the glasses to the ‘Sunglass Style Bar’. A salesperson will be waiting to help them try on - and hopefully sell - the real sunglasses.
