keiichi matsuda: augmented city

designer keiichi matsuda is a designer and film maker who often enjoys explore futuristic design concepts through the medium of film. one of his latest experiemnts is augmented city, a small walk through a few minutes in different people’s lives in a city filled with augmented reality technology. beyond forecasting the way people may live in the future, the video demonstrates a series of different technological devices and interfaces. beyond the architecture we have built , the future in matsuda’s eyes will be as much about virtual architecture and information.

the architecture of the contemporary city is no longer simply about the physical space of buildings and landscape, more and more it is about the synthetic spaces created by the digital information that we collect, consume and organise; an immersive interface may become as much part of the world we inhabit as the buildings around us.

  • Wading through augmented advertising trash…how wonderful!

    Dr. Design says:
  • the only thing i like about this video, you have to look at it cross eyed hahaha

    I see the future as a more, back to nature way of life.
    we should invest more in our body mind and ego’s.
