How would you like to navigate a college with a drone tour guide? That’s the concept behind Skycall, a playful prototype designed to help visiting Harvard students find their way around MIT's confusing campus.
Skycall is the work of the Senseable City Laboratory, an MIT research group. They explore how sensor technology can be deployed to make cities smarter. The lab's director Carlo Ratti explains that the idea for Skycall came from a common sight on MIT's campus - the Harvard students are always getting lost at MIT.
