  • REACH - Lamppost22
    Interactive technology design
  • Lamppost22 is an interactive lighting installation for people to share, spread and connect in a local area. Lamppost 22 is one of the lampposts of the network of REACH. This lamppost is a central point for the neighborhood and a marketplace to share and exchange tips, lost and found, goods, and more. Once you send your message through a tweet to the lamppost in your neighbourhood, REACH makes sure that the message will be spread around towards other posts in that same neighborhood.
  • Categorize:
    The categories help to structure the messages that can be sent. There are seven categories. By scanning, for example, the red ball QR-code on the post, this brings you to the category website of ‘jobs’. Here you can reply to a message or send one of your own. By adding a hashtag, it will get to the right category so others can easily find your message.
    - JOBS: If you are looking for a job, offering one, or have other information related to jobs, you can leave a message with #lp22jobs
    - TIPS: Maybe you have tips of the neighborhood. A local new restaurant, or a gym that you love to go to. Share it with #lp22tips
    - SERVICES: Are you looking for help to restructure your garden, or can you offer pianolessons or are you good with maths? #lp22services
    - GOODS: Buying a new couch but is your old one still worth sitting on? Maybe somebody can still use it. Post it on REACH with. #lp22goods
    - FUN: Do you have a good idea for the friday evening? Share ideas to go see a comedian, a festival in the area or music in the city. #lp22fun
    - LOST&FOUND: If you have lost your bracelet you got from your family when graduating, or maybe as simple as your dogs toy, find it back. #lp22lostfound
    - OTHERS: Anything that does not fit any of the other categories, (maybe just a fun joke you’ve heard), share it in the ‘others’ category. #lp22other
