DUIT | DUIT Pod
DUIT Pod comes from DU IT research project on sensory environment for users with specific needs, focusing on the application of technology to architecture. It combines unique design, innovative technology for automation and customization and psychological support in a compact well-being sensory system that aims at generating relax and reducing stress level. DUIT Pod represents a sensory nest: a secure and calming environment where it is possible to interact with a technological system to change and adapt the environment it-self to users’ sensory preferences. There are four base-case scenarios – relax, energy, balance and dream – that integrate some sensory stimulation: colored lights, video, music, tactile sound vibrations and aromas. People can lie down inside DuitPOD and choose one or more scenarios, depending on their mood. DuitPOD ergonomic is designed to enhance relaxation in a protective alcove. An acoustic curtain takes each one out off the contest, answering to users’ need of isolation and containment. The sensory experience starts when the user press one button and can last all the time the person needs to get relaxed. A first prototype of DUIT Pod has been tested in Florence Peretola Airport, with excellent results in terms of users access, and it was also chosen by ENAC to be part of the accessibility plan in airports for Autism Spectrum Disorders. DUIT Pod was also installed in several charities for people with disabilities and centers for neuro-psychomotricity, such as Davide e Golia Onlus, NPM - Bambini in Movimento, etc.
