Explore is a multi-sensory digital device
an inspiring and fun experience for users in transit
a tactile tablet that guides travelers through their future destination and their travel desires
Did you know that 80% of travelers wait an average of 2 hours at the airport before boarding? And that once they arrive at their destination, most of them feel lost? With this in mind, the designer created an inspiring and fun experience for users in transit.
Explore is a multi-sensory digital device controlled by three distinct media:
- A tactile tablet that guides travelers through their future destination and their travel desires;
- A sound device, in the form of a guest book, providing complementary sounds and testimonies;
- Virtual reality headsets that immerse the participant in the mythical landmarks of the country to be visited.
The experience is memorable.
"Lola has cleverly analyzed the wait, the "in-between time" that we sometimes try to fill."
'The Explore installation is a tourist-oriented concept that aims to provide a new service in airport boarding areas.
The module, composed of a dozen stools, is located in the waiting area. It features a large table where travelers can get information about their destination using touch screens. A second component offers an immersive sound and visual experience, like a "journey before the journey".
The spatial layout is friendly and encourages people to interact. On the screens, new and surprising subjects are presented, allowing travelers going to the same place to communicate and get to know each other.
Lola has cleverly analyzed the wait, the "in-between time" that we sometimes try to fill. She uses this lever to create useful and enjoyable interactions. She has thus analyzed the existing spatial situations in airports to offer a modular and easily integrated solution.' Teaching Manager Media Design
