Responsive City TED

“We think we can develop a vehicle that operates on bike lanes, that’s accessible to elderly, disabled, women in skirts, business people, and address the issues of energy, congestion, mobility, aging, and obesity simultaneously.”
For the first time in history more people live in cities than in rural areas and the trend is accelerating worldwide. In this TEDPrize City 2.0 talk Kent Larson, director of the MIT Media Lab Changing Places’ group, tackles the problems of increased congestion and pollution with new models for urban dwellings, shared-use vehicles, and responsive environments.
