It’s literally a Real Place – and people go there in real-life
It’s literally a Real Place and you can go there in Real Life. Just like the Internet, people join groups to discuss anything and everything. But now you can do that in-person – in real life!
There are many small groups at tables. Each table has an electronic sign that shows what’s being discussed. People are free to drop-in on any group and new groups can easily be created.
WHAT'S IN A REAL PLACE
It’s literally a Real Place you can visit. It’s designed to make you feel like you’re ‘physically inside the Internet’ – but you’re talking to people in real-life.
Electronic Signs above tables show what’s being discussed. It’s divided into Subject Zones by lighting tables in different colours. The overall look is futuristic but the feel is friendly and intimate – like a cafe. A large display at the entrance gives an overview of the whole thing and it shows what’s being discussed at every table.
The electronic signs are transparent so the discussion topic ‘appears in the air’. Immersive technology is used to make you feel like you’re ‘physically inside the Internet’.
A NEW HUMAN CENTERED TECHNOLOGY
The Internet has reduced human contact
Digital technology has replaced face-to-face conversation
A Real Place does exactly the opposite
CONNECTION TO INTERNET-BASED SOCIAL MEDIA
People find out what’s being discussed online and arrange to meet in-person in a Real Place.
Everything can be discussed face-to-face and simultaneously online.
THE ENTER REALITY APP
Before you get there
• Find out what’s being discussed face-to-face at each Real Place
• You can ask to create a discussion group – before you even get there
When you’re in A Real Place
• Ask to create a new group – or change the subject of the one you’re in
• Share ideas online, which you discussed face to face – and vote on them
• Chat online with people who are discussing the same thing face-to-face – in another Real Place – even in another country.
The App is completely optional – some people prefer face-to-face conversation only.
No personal data will ever be captured in a Real Place.
