You’d be forgiven for thinking that happiness can’t be measured. But what if there was a digital display in the city centre, like a clock, that told you how happy Sheffield was at any given time? That’s right, we’ve made one.

The (in)famous hole in the road has been recreated. Just put on the virtual reality headset and you’re there. As you travel through it, you choose which paths to explore. Each path leads to a unique set of stories, episodes from real lives, all linked to one extraordinary place.
