He walked faster, right?
I call this the staircase illusion,
and actually when the staircase illusion abruptly ended, he froze, and this is called freezing of gait.
So it happens a lot, so why not have a staircase illusion flowing through all their rooms,
making them feel much more confident? You know, technology is not always it.
What we need are human-centered solutions.
I could have easily made it into a projection, or a Google Glass, or something like that.
But I stuck to simple print on the floor.
This print could be taken into hospitals to make them feel much more welcome.
What I wish to do is make every Parkinson's patient feel like my uncle felt that day.
He told me that I made him feel like his old self again.
"Smart" in today's world has become synonymous to high tech, and the world is only getting smarter and smarter day by day.
But why can't smart be something that's simple and yet effective?
All we need is a little bit of empathy and some curiosity, to go out there, observe.
But let's not stop at that. Let's find these complex problems. Don't be scared of them.
Break them, boil them down into much smaller problems, and then find simple solutions for them.
Test these solutions, fail if needed, but with newer insights to make it better.
Imagine what we all could do if we all came up with simple solutions.
What would the world be like if we combined all our simple solutions?
Let's make a smarter world, but with simplicity. Thank you.
