Future Underground

In this future, global climate change brought devastating consequences. Rising sea levels, erratic climates, and the severe lack of natural resources created millions of “Climate Refugees”. Overpopulation and bubbling property prices forced the climate refugees into underground cities.

In the underground city, the lack of natural resources is monitored and rationed. A series of proximity sensors are installed near taps and light switches as measures to prevent hoarding and excessive usage. In order to access these resources, more than one person needs to be present.

Future Underground is part of the Introduction to Interaction Design course. Our brief was randomly generated by rolling dices with different constraints. Our concept was inspired by the words, “underground”, “migrant”, and “underground”.
