Public Mobility Concept for Shanghai utilizes Augmented Reality as it guides users through a mixed-reality future city. The HaiPai has two modes, Daydreaming and Social - shown here in this video of a in use scenario. While not in use, HaiPai seems as though its in a colorful "dreamy" state, similar to the auroras with its colorful geometric star serving as a beacon on the streets. Then the HaiPai becomes "social" once it sees a potential user and points out where they could be heading to if they use the vehicle,... Therefore, allowing the HaiPai to become a guide within the modern city, just as the stars were a guide to many people of the past. Applying animism to simple yet dynamic interaction design makes for a memorable experience of the city of Shanghai.
