Protiotype's second Augmented Spaces event was held at Publicis Sapient as part of Singapore Design Week in 2019.

November, 2018. A new round of refurbishment at our Singapore Polytechnic Smart FM / Sustainable Building Lab was completed in October 2018. Contractors have dismantled the simulated hotel lobby, removed superfluous decorations and painted the surfaces of the space white such that our Sustainable Building exhibition can grow to fill the entire space.
A User Experience workshop was held at the Lab in November and attended by twenty Protiotype stakeholders. Decisions were made to include new products in the Lab such as facial recognition access control from our partners OneConnect Financial Technology (Singapore); gesture remote control from Visimote and vibration and flow sensors from EverComm Singapore.
Five panels and a projector from SONY have been installed and connected to a central server. Soon, a digital media system from Exterity will be installed to manage media content to the SONY devices.
An illustration of the Dunwell Bio-waste management solution will be added to the Smart Sustainable Building mural before the end of this year.
12 May, 2018. The development of our smart sustainable building showcase at Singapore Polytechnic continued with a half day workshop.

Saturday January 21, 2017. The community gathered to build what we call the 'clunky machine'. The purpose of this hackathon was to start building the components of the Intelligent Interior - Future Workplace. Kindly hosted by Eon Reality.
Teams completed specific tasks by the end of the day. We achieved - Proximity counting with Kismet passive Wi-FI scanning and Raspberry Pi with JSON front end integration - 3D room modelling with Fusion 360 to create a virtual version of a physical space - Augmented Reality operating system - An "Office at your disposal" user journey - A lot of fun, passion and excitement.
Fun fact: we can now play music videos that adapt to the number of people in the room 😍
Things we worked with: Hololens, Epson Moverio BT-300, Bosch XDK, Amazon Echo Dot, and Raspberry Pi.
Held on Saturday October 26, 2016. EON Reality hosted twenty Protiotype stakeholders in a busy day of debate about the Intelligent Interiors concept. Our wide-ranging discussions helped to define what an Intelligent Interior is. By the end of the day we reached concensus that our project would focus on the workplace of the future, and that we would seek to find a permanent home to build a Protiotype research laboratory to explore the idea further.
