I show­cased Shravan Apps by Oswald Labs as part of the Mind the Step ex­hi­bi­tion at the Dutch Design Week 2018 in the Klokgebouw in Eindhoven. The event fea­tured de­sign-dri­ven tech­nol­ogy and re­search by the 4TU, the con­sor­tium of Dutch tech­ni­cal uni­ver­si­ties.

This year—sup­ported by the UTs DesignLab—Mind the Step will pre­sent pro­jects at the in­ter­face of de­sign, re­search and tech­nol­ogy to 70,000 ex­pected vis­i­tors in Eindhoven. It specif­i­cally fo­cuses on pro­jects that com­bine de­sign, re­search, and tech­nol­ogy with a so­cial ap­pli­ca­tion.”

This year, Mind the Step has 6 main top­ics — Innovative ma­te­ri­als, Design for de­bate, Health and well be­ing, Home and leisure, The new mo­bil­ity, and Improving pro­fes­sional en­vi­ron­ment.
