- Let's Go! -
Are you in District Hall?
This tour is for people in and around District Hall, Boston, USA.
Onto the Touch*Less Tour!
We've been creating a bunch of things -- touchless things -- to place around District Hall. You can interact with all of them without contacting anything.
The idea is to explore the frontier of touchlessness in the post-Covid (soon, we hope) era.
First up: a "Gachapon" Gumball Machine. Controlled by a gesture sensor. Just wave your hand.
You can read the background on this machine, and gesture sensors, in Placemaking Report, Season 2.
