Paris becomes a living Ideas Lab

40 innovations are on live trial around Paris to improve life in the city.  Mobilier Urbain Intelligent, or “Intelligent Urban Installations,” coordinated between the Mayor’s Office and the Paris Region Lab, allows Parisians to experience these innovations firsthand with the possibility to evaluate and comment on each one online. Projects include public smartphones, touch screen kiosks, and memory foam chairs in parks. The mayor’s team and the Paris Region Lab will monitor each innovation, deciding later which ones to keep and which ones to improve.
