- Player One -

What's going on here, at District Hall?

If you're here, you can experience some touchlessness: Interact with the "gachapon" (aka gumball machine) without touching anything.

(If you're dropping in from the Outer Internet, you can follow along from home. For context check out Placemaking Report.)

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 going STRAIGHT UP! One hundred feet directly above District Hall in a drone.  Just head to this Straight Up from District Hall site on the internets. 

See ya 'round District Hall!
