“This was on a Thursday morning, at 8 am. By Friday evening, the basic concept of the Nests was born, a prototype showing off shape, functionality, and processes was there, even including a VR prototype to be able to experience what it feels like to be in one of the capsules—and we never changed anything substantial all of that later,” Florian told us what happened a couple of years ago.
He admitted that the initial vision went through a lot of “refinement, development, and testing” until it was ready to be tested “in the field” last winter. Florian shared with us the very first “Friday-evening” prototype which can be seen here on Instagram and here on Vimeo. The ‘nests’ are in the second year of being used and tested in Ulm and there’s still lots of improvement that’s being done.
