... However, many potential users or inhabitants of smart environments do not belong to this selective group of smart technology users and because of their age, physical characteristics or disabilities are excluded of being a 'full' participant of playful activities offered by smart urban environments. Recently we see initiatives [5][6][7] that provide visions for an inclusive accessible urban future, where inclusive includes older people, persons with disabilities [8] and children (child-friendly smart cities [9]). We still have to wait for similar visions from the "Playable City" initiative. ...
... childinthecity.org/) with its seminars and conferences on children's play in urban environments and its focus on childrens' needs in urban planning [9] and childrens' role as fellow urban citizens and as co-researchers of the city. Especially in the United Kingdom many projects can be mentioned that aim at making streets safer for children, reducing traffic, pedestrianising city parts and do not take the view that outdoor children play can only take place in fenced and hazard-proofing playground with equipment that has a prescribed way of play. ...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The concept of playable cities was introduced in the city of Bristol (UK) in 2012. While in smart cities the focus is on efficiency, whether it is on city governance, energy consumption, waste management, communication or transport, in playable cities the focus is on making cities more attractive for its inhabitants and visitors by introducing entertaining, playful and humorous interactive installations in the urban environment. In this paper we look at existing playable city projects, look at their characteristics and see whether their 'playability' can be experienced by others than those who are qualified as the 'smart people' that are usually seen as the 'users' of these playful installations. We mention some criticisms on these projects and also compare the playable cities initiatives with initiatives that aim at making cities more child-friendly.
