FICTIONAL TRAVEL GUIDE

Overview: 

This is a fictional travel guide for the year 2050. Situating our inquiry in Bloomington, a college town in American MidWest, we imagine it to be a smart and connected town with IoT infrastructure. We investigated through various aspects regarding urban planning, from transportation and energy to landscaping and network, to imagine how travel can be in 2050.
