The Health & Safety Ecosystem is an ecosystem of wearable technologies, objects connected with each other and with the ability to record critical information for operators and to communicate directly with a vibration system in contact with the body. This approach allows users to have the information even while they are carrying out their work, also while wearing ear protection and without the need to look at a monitor or warning light.
The ENI fuel station station of the tomorrow project looks to create incremental innovation within fuel station delivery and experience. While acknowledging that alternate fuel sources are the future in station design, this project looks to new experiences and technologies that will aid in the transition from fuel stations today to the stations of the future. Shown here, is the station design, a reinvented payment system and even a smart glass dashboard solution.
The collaboration between MIT’s Mobile Experience Lab and Eni started with a reinvention of the refueling experience but expanded to the big-picture, asking: How could the petrol station become a future hub for mobility? The two groups approached and redefined the question through research topics ranging from shifts in transportation patterns to mobile payment and user recognition technologies.
The very nature of innovative has been wild ideas, and these ideas can no-longer stay on the screen. We have to make them real and challenge them.
Design and co-design processes become a resource not only helpful for the ideation phase, but also oriented towards the implementation and deploymentof products and services in local contexts.
Our Lab uses personal design thinking to unlock potential in the physical world around us. We seek to radically reinvent and creatively design connections between people, information, and places.
