Stalled! Blended Reality: Prototype for an All-Gender Public Restroom

Project:

Stalled! Blended Reality will employ virtual reality technologies to develop design prototypes for safe and inclusive public restrooms that addresses the needs of diverse bodies of different genders, ages, and disabilities.

We will employ blended reality as a design and representational tool to generate a blended reality prototype allowing users to experience the visual, acoustic, and tactile qualities of a multi-unit all-gender prototype bathroom.
