Nendo has proposed an autonomous mobile playground concept that is geared to take outdoor playtime to the next level with artificial intelligence. The innovative idea is dubbed 'Coen Car' and with the help of Tokyo-based tech company DeNA, six mobile designs were created "based on basic motions used during playground activities." This includes climbing, spinning, swinging, sliding, resting, and jumping.
Given the context of their use, Nendo and DeNA include "curved edges and blinking eyes made of rows of flashing LEDs" to give the mobile playground equipment "a friendly appearance."
One of the designs for the mobile playground is a trolley that takes children from one place to another. The 'Mawaru,' on the other hand, boasts a semi-circular design with spikes so kids can climb on top of it.
