We’re delighted to share Plan’s sixth issue of our Perspective magazine on mobility and tech. In this issue, we continue to focus on real opportunities, while sidestepping the hype and wishful thinking.

In the opening feature, we take a look at the latest thinking in smart cities looking at Sidewalk Labs’ proposals for The Quayside in Toronto. For the Camera and  Gaming enthusiasts, we explore how both sectors are responding to new technologies and challenges with a new burst of activity.

In another pair of articles, we look at how integrating services can help product companies navigate the big online retailers and find new streams of revenue.

All this plus our regular elements, such as Killer Stats and Eyecatchers.

Past issues

Perspective 05

Issue 05 took a look at how cities are planning to shape how we will experience autonomous vehicles on their streets and on a more socio-economic front,  why there are many reasons to be cheerful about the developments in machine intelligence, despite the fear-mongering.

Perspective 04

Issue 04 navigated the future of mobility, exploring some of the potential impacts of Electric and Autonomous vehicles on society. By taking a longer view we present some of our speculations of the opportunities and challenges we face.

Perspective 03

Issue 03 tackled the theme of navigating ambiguity in all its forms, a challenge that we at Plan constantly find ourselves presented with. It includes articles on: research in an agile world, design leadership in flux, the challenges of designing voice-based assistants and much more.

Perspective 02

Issue 02 took a long view of the future of urban mobility, from accessing the critical success factors of car clubs to debunking beliefs about Gen Y’s relationship to car ownership.

Perspective 01

Issue 01 looked to toast to the past and the future, and to provide an antidote to the echo chamber of fast facts and trash trends. The issue focused on what was the hype of 2014 – wearables, and a look to the future of transportation.
