Dynamic Grass Color Scale Display Technique Based on Grass Length for Green Landscape-Friendly Animation Display

  title={Dynamic Grass Color Scale Display Technique Based on Grass Length for Green Landscape-Friendly Animation Display},
  author={Kojiro Tanaka and Yuichi Kato and Masahiko Mikawa and Makoto Fujisawa},
Recently, public displays such as liquid crystal displays (LCDs) are often used in urban green spaces, however, the display devices can spoil green landscape of urban green spaces because they look like artificial materials. We previously proposed a green landscape-friendly grass animation display method by controlling a pixel-by-pixel grass color dynamically. The grass color can be changed by moving a green grass length in yellow grass, and the grass animation display can play simple…

This paper presents Sustainabot - a small robot printer that uses everyday materials to print shapes and patterns from mobile phones, proposed and developed by and with emergent users through a series of co-creation workshops.
Extending a Gamified Mobile App with a Public Display to Encourage Walking
It is found that adding the public display significantly increased step counts and users' motivation to walk, which seems to be attributable to the significant increase in social relatedness.
UbiLibrary: Situated Large Public Display as Interactive Interface to Library Services
The UbiLibrary system provides library customers with rich information on library's services and events through a metadata engine that semantically complements the library's database with supplementary metadata crawled from online sources and further personalizes information according to the age and gender of the user estimated through face recognition.
The Big Chill
Healthy nature healthy people: 'contact with nature' as an upstream health promotion intervention for populations.
Findings indicate that nature plays a vital role in human health and well-being, and that parks and nature reserves play a significant role by providing access to nature for individuals, and provides the basis for a socio-ecological approach to public health that incorporates environmental sustainability.
