Displayed during the cultural festival Ingravid, Catalunya (Spain), the “Urban Cursor” is a GPS-enabled bench or seating that allows social interaction in public spaces. The brainchild of Danish designer Sebastian Campion, the 3D computer cursor can be moved around as an on-screen computer pointer and keep in touch with the digital world through an embedded GPS device. The cursor passes on its geographic coordinates to a website so it can be mapped in Google Maps, which documents the cursor’s movements in the physical world and lets the participants watch their activities in the digital world.
