Fabrication and Electronics Team - YourFry Toronto
On November 6th, Ryerson University’s Transmedia Zone, Penguin Books, and the Toronto Reference Library teamed up with over 60 readers, storytellers, designers, makers and innovators to envision the library of the future. Teams tackled design fictions for architecture, interface design, and narrative. The design challenge was successful in generating out of the box ideas that envisioned the future of story, community and learning with the library at the forefront of each concept.
With the maker movement on the rise, the Fabrication & Electronics team created custom wearable library cards that have the ability to project personal library "bubbles" around the user. The demo library cards, fashioned to reflect literary iconography, were created on site utilizing the 3D printer made available to the Design Challenge teams.
