JOURNAL CLUB #6 : Smart City demo – Guangzhou International Bio Island China has built a Biotech Island in the Pearl River! What is going on? I went to the city of Guangzhou
to pay a visit to Bio Island, an island that is not only full of biotech companies, but also full of autonomous vehicles.
The roads are packed with driverless buses, driverless taxis, driverless street sweepers, and driverless delivery trucks!
This is quite simply what the future might look like a few years from now. But is it safe? I've never been in a self-driving vehicle before,
so I decided to take a driverless bus for a spin around the island.

JOURNAL CLUB #7: Lifesize Plans Augmented Reality
With the use of state of the art integrated projection technology we are able to show your complete project – including upper and lower floors, external landscaped areas, common areas, renders, and more at a ‘true’ 1:1 scale.
You can park your vehicles in the projected carpark and walk around your whole property before taking the next steps into VR/AR/XR. Your whole family, design team, and stakeholders can experience this all at the same time.
We incorporate the use of real furniture and props, as well as partition walls and decorations, to give you the best chance possible of perfecting your design.
We encourage you to push the props around the floor and place them in your rooms, hallways and shared areas, so you can get a true feel of your layout and size.
