Design Mind presents a special digital issue exclusively on the future of urban living. According to magazine the adoption of ubiquitous computing, mobile devices, and rich sources of data are changing how we live, work, and play in urban environments. Increasingly, a digital landscape overlays our physical world and is expanding to offer ever-richer experiences that augment’”and in some cases, replace’”the physical experience: “The city is the platform, the network, the sensors, and the interface,’ as frog creative director Rob McIntosh put it in a recent talk.
