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.
