Text messages have virtually eliminated the need for voicemail, and are a faster way to convey a message than a phone call. In the same way, GPS-based augmented reality could eliminate the need for text messages.

This presentation will highlight the advantages and disadvantages of visual and non-visual augmented reality. We’ll cover alternate types of augmented reality techniques and how they have been saving us time in the past few months. We’ll demonstrate how we’ve been merging available technologies with custom programming to create location-aware social networks with custom proximity notification. Finally, we’ll describe other uses for location sharing, such as automatically turning off house lights when leaving for work, and wayfinding with piezoelectric buzzers. Privacy and data transparency will also be discussed.

Aaron will also present data visualizations, animations, and a glimpse of the raw data of his two years of to-the-second GPS logs which provide the basis of the location-based augmented reality system. You can see a preview of some of the images here: http://aaronparecki.com/GPS_Visualization
