Purpose of guidance technology
Influenced by the search for a technology experience that replicates the human-to-human interaction, I was lead to a pod cast called Digital Human. Digital human is a podcast that expresses how technology can be adapted to human interaction and activities, specifically their season 9 way finding episode that expresses how to provide users with a guidance technology that allows users to make use of their observations skills.

I agree with the digital humans expression that we have grown to trust technology too much and room must be made for humans to use their own observational skills along side the technology. This also relates to the raw data (100 yards) that leave little room for human observation that users can obtain by receiving directions (look for church).
I believe that if I am to create a responsive social thing that allows users to use their observational skills, I need to look into technology that can have independent responses similar to humans. This reminds me of the other treasure object of the tribe member the responsive dog. I will move forward to conduct research into the dog tribe member who engages with the behaviour of the dog.
