What if countertops could detect bacteria and alert people to the offending spots? Or if beds could nudge people when they start snoring?
That’s just two of the interactive prototypes on display at Drexel University’s Design Futures Lab exhibit at the URBN Center Annex (3401 Filbert St.) until July 21. Imagined and built by Drexel students who are pursuing their master’s degrees in Interior Architecture and Design, the prototypes are “near-future speculations,” or items that students believe could be for sale in the next five-ten years.
The project was part of a year-long residency at Drexel’s Design Futures Lab, “a trans-disciplinary design research group led by assistant professor Nicole Koltick,” according to the release.
The exhibit is free and open to the public Monday – Friday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
