15 Jun 2016 Experiencing the city in a new way

When you walk through a city you usually take very specific routes. But what if wayfinding could inspire you to take different routes every day, based upon your mood? Some teams around the world are experimenting with this as we speak.

In general most people who know the city they are in will take the most efficient route. Okay, sometimes they will take a small detour via some special spots that they enjoy. But overall people who are in the same environment for a long time are unable to see through things and enjoy the environment in a completely new way.
