The Urballoon is a helium balloon with a video projector that displays a feed of social media tagged with a hashtag onto the ground of a street, plaza or park. See how it works >
This temporary installation creates an instant media interface to a place that allows communication between people, environments and events.
Urballoon is a platform for interactions in urban spaces. It connects the social web to our streets and enables new models of public dialogue and exchange of ideas.
The project asks a relevant or timely topic to the local public that helps frame the exchange.
Some scenarios include:
How you define your city in a tweet or image?
What would you like this space to become?
Share your pictures of outdoor festivals, sporting events, etc.
What issue in your community needs to be solved?
Broadcast data from things to inform or debate.
Provide wifi, broadcast public information and allow public cooperation during disaster relief.
