Landing is an experience recording app. It allows users to take special notes that are related to specific locations as a way to help people create and reinforce their bonds to physical surroundings.

Digital technology in general always pulls us away from where we are physically, and our physical location is losing its meaning and influence on us, but on the other hand, we couldn’t reject the increasing use and needs of digital technology. I attempt to solve that by integrating virtual space and physical reality in ways that allow people to interact with both spaces at the same time.

By doing so, it creates special bonds and turns our physical surroundings to become part of us, and that adds specialty and uniqueness to who we are, which means we could actually become “more human” with the help of digital technology.

This could be especially helpful for people who are addicted to digital devices but also want to build strong connections with their physical surroundings.
