Ji-Gai, Fortune Changer / Product design

Ji-Gai, Fortune Changer

Ji-Gai, a ritual of Taiwanese traditional culture, can ward off the calamities and change people’s fortune by the power of Taoist priests and gods. The process of the ritual needs some tributes, and it takes time and money. However, the people nowadays work and live in a rush, and consequently make the ritual be forgotten gradually. In order to hand down the main spiritual of Ji-Gai, we think of the temple as vending machines. Operating the machine combine with the widgets, smart glasses with the MR (mixed reality) technology, we can enjoy the brand new way to experience the ritual in rapid and simple way.
