Location as Invisible Interface - ARE2011 Presentation


Published on

The best interfaces are invisible. They should get out of the way and help you live your life.

This presentation discusses ambient applications, multiple sensory inputs and a history of heavy-weight contextual reality applications. It starts with Steve Mann, who believed that computers should be wearable, and who was obsessed with the idea of creating a custom reality based on his personal preferences.

The second part of this presentation talk about how we're building subscription-based reality and contextual notification systems on top of Geoloqi, how non-visual augmented reality is replacing interactions with the phone with interactions with the world, and real-time location-based gaming.

  • The point is information should be pushed to you instead of having to seek it out. In order to do this, we need to make our computers and systems more aware of our context so they can work for us. One component of this, and the one we’re focusing on, is location. Imagine if this app knows you haven’t eaten in a while, so it suggests some places you might like to eat that are nearby.
  • Now I have been logging GPS positions everywhere I go and have been doing it for the last 3 years.
  • We see people experimenting with location and building things like Foursquare. Putting yourself on pause at a social gathering in order to check in on Foursquare is sometimes awkward. We want a more passive system, something that doesn’t require as much interaction to use.----- Meeting Notes (2011-05-17 11:54) -----2:30
  • What we’ve been doing in Geoloqi is building up profiles of where people spend time. This, for example, is a list of three places I often visit, and the dates and times of each of my visits. You can see I spent 8 hours at this coffee shop on April 9th, and about 3 hours there on March 27th.
  • Frankly, I don’t care if my friend in New York is at his neighborhood coffee shop or his local gym, but if he is anywhere in San Francisco, I’d like to know so I can invite him to lunch. There’s a difference between privacy and looking for the signal in the noise.Even if he's comfortable sharing everything publicly, I just don't really need to know about it.
  • We can use this information to build a unique footprint of the city for each person. Then we can provide recommendations and filter events based on each person’s individual pattern.----- Meeting Notes (2011-05-17 11:54) -----6:00
  • Example: take restaurant inspection scores, and send an SMS if you’re near a restaurant with a low score.
  • Explain map attack game at Stanford. While we were there, Mark from Spot Metrix quickly set up a viewer for the game board in his augmented reality view framework!
