On to the Touchlessness

The idea is to explore the frontier of touchlessness in the post-Covid (soon, we hope) era.

First up: a "gachapon" (aka gumball machine). Controlled by a gesture sensor. Just wave your hand over that pink box.

You can read the background on this machine, and gesture sensors, in Placemaking Report, Season 2.

What do you get, inside those capsules? 

It depends. Right now we're conducting an exploration into Non Fungible Tokens. So each capsule contains a link to one of the big, blockchain-y art marketplaces. You can more about our NFT adventure here, in Unhappy Boston! 

See ya 'round District Hall!
