Parking is a take on the common API design problem of creating a parking garage. While this served as the initial inspiration, the project drifted into more of a live art / human connection piece.
Users claim their parking spot by hovering their cursor over the spot, if they stop hovering they loose the spot. As a result of this if a spot is occupied, you (the viewer) knows exactly what another person is doing right at this second.
You don’t know their gender, location or political affiliation. You just know what a fellow human being is doing at this very second.
Parking was built with Websockets and React. Drones were added to spice things up if a human connection is unavaliable.
