The “Research Complex NTT R&D @ ICC” was launched at the exhibition ”Open Space 2017: Re-Envisioning the Future,” as a platform for showcasing the advanced endeavors of the NTT laboratories within ICC’s exhibition activities, and proposing future concepts related to mankind and human society. Introduced at this year’s exhibition, were projects related to “wellbeing” as a topic that has gathered attention in recent years, with a focus on the question how we can create “our own wellbeing” within our relationships with other people.
In concrete terms, as “tools for thinking,” the exhibitors introduced a selection of previous writings related to wellbeing and haptics. As “tools for connecting,” they installed the hands-on “Vibro-scape,” a landscape that haptically communicates vibrations at remote places, and the “Public Booth for Vibrotactile Communication” that connects human individuals by way of tactile transmission. Finally, as “tools for measuring,” they provided “Cards for Collective Wellbeing” for visitors to pick up and be reminded of the factors that contribute to each person’s own individual feeling of wellbeing. The idea was to inspire visitors to imagine the process by which our individual wellbeing is achieved through touch-based connections with others.
