Walk into the Future of NYC: Explore Upcoming Developments On-Site in Augmented Reality
Led By Dana Chermesh AND Ziv Schneider, inCitu
inCitu democratizes the process of urban development by incentivizing community participation through immersive experiences. Our Augmented-Reality-powered civic engagement tool takes proposals out of City Hall and onto their urban context, letting anyone see any project proposed to their neighborhood on-site in AR, and provides insights into the impact of a project on them and their neighbors. Most importantly, we let them join in the planning of change.
As Jane Jacobs said: “Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because and only when, they are created by everybody”
inCitu is an NYC-based, social impact venture-backed startup that is incubated in Schmidt Futures, Wendy and Eric Schmidt’s Venture Facility for Public Benefit.
We will walk between two upcoming developments in Midtown Manhattan, starting at 415 Madison Ave. We will walk one block west and continue south on 5th Ave 46th St.. Our walk is as accessible as NYC streets are :) The walk leaders will be holding an inCitu sign with QR code to download the app, and will wear Jane's Walk T-Shirts
RSVP is required and capacity is limited. Meeting location, ending location, and directions will be provided via email before walk date.
