AR proper finally meets the iPhone w. TwittARound and others

 Category: mobile
Posted: 2009-07-19 00:08, Edited: 2009-07-19 03:08

Those of you who know me, know my obsession with AR (proper, meaning real world video with GPS). This month brings two just released iphone apps to my attention.. TwittARound and New York Nearest Subyway.

They both basically do the same thing — use the iPhone 3GS GPS and Video to overlay data (via GPS coords) on top of whatever you’re pointing the camera at.

Mike you may remember talking about this very idea waaaay back in 1987 ad nauseam as we were coming back from the North Point Flea Market... except I preferred it with HUD glasses.





TwittARound by far has the most commercial potential, and will likely in short order be utilized by someone like Starbucks (and hopefully smaller independent companies) to show their various locations around a city. All they would need to do is create a simple list of tweets of each of their locations, and some custom icon perhaps, and voila... point your phone towards the sky and free location adverts everywhere. (Bye bye Viacom roadside signs, Hello beautiful scenery!)

But the most creative and interesting uses for me are that of things like Graffiti, youth culture and things like Yelp. Imagine being able to see reviews of restaurants in real time in their front windows. Imagine being able to see cool and custom burners of local artist on their favorite buildings, 600 feet in the air.

Beyond that imagine you are going to a secret party, or a friends house, and as you approach the city, 300 feet in the air is a beacon that says "The party is here", with messages on each corner saying turn here for the party, and so on. Or secret notes friends about a club / store / gallery that you must go to when visiting a new town.

This will revolutionize so many industries in the coming years, and I can even see a place where once again the iPhone leads the way, with iphone driven HUD displays and appliances in cars and everywhere we go.

There are just soooo many uses for these kits, both commercial and personal, that I can't wait to see what develops next.

iPhone OS 3 sdk madness

 Category: mobile
Posted: 2009-03-21 09:40, Edited: 2009-03-21 12:40

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/hero20090317.jpg

Ok so I was watching the iphone OS 3 keynote the other day and man is it insane.

I will hazard a guess this cause people to eventually have an iPhone and a couple of iTouchs around the house to control all kinds of things. Rumor has it they are coming out with a midsize pad thing like the nokia, and I would logically guess it will use this OS, with a much bigger/better screen.

lThe 3.0 SDK has nearly a 1000 api's... and here are a few key points.

- Peer to Peer / via Bluetooth (w.out pairing)
- using Bonjour for Automatic Discovery
- apps to control 3rd part hardware accessories (w bluetooth or direct connect)
- public maps api for custom app info (using GPS / Cell Towers)
- apple push notification service
- a proximity sensor (?) api
- ipod lib access (for reading local lib media files), from any app.
- new media player can adjust bandwidth to your connection.

Wadja Mobile Website Creator

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/wadja.jpg

Wadja is all about the internet on your mobile phone. Our number one goal is to make it as easy as can be for you to have as much fun with your mobile device as humanly possible! With Wadja your mobile phone becomes so much more than a gadget. Make friends, send FREE text (sms) messages, share photos, music, and video clips from one mobile phone to another. Geography, service provider, handset, screen size...it doesn't matter, Wadja goes where you go.

I am guessing they are hoping to create the buzz of a MySpace for the mobile scene, build your profile and upload images and other media...

The interesting thing is that they have a desktop app (PC Only) that allows you to build your mobile site... which they in turn host for you (Free 10meg?) or you can host yourself.

Strange that they don't have a 2.0 interface for building, to complete the Social Networking "template", as it would be fairly easy to create the same sort of thing for a mobile site as it is for the 3million other 2.0 sites... And after using the sitenutes, you will defintely feal the "Beta" tag...

here 2.0 : mobile communities

 Category: mobile
Posted: 2006-06-19 00:12, Edited: 2006-06-19 03:12

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/imity.jpg

Imity is an interesting project that uses the Bluetooth capabilities in mobile phones to create a user generated communities in your present location, hence Here 2.0. It's sort of a next generation dodgeball, as everonye these days likes to say dodgeball 2.0.

"The Imity software can utilize the Bluetooth signal to establish a list of people within a 10 meter radius, so social interaction becomes possible within a place. You can message people using the same software within the vicinity and hereby allow you to meet people in a new way."

One if the more interesting parts of this is the it logs who you are near, while your phone is tucked away.

Of course some of you Nintendo DS fanboys call this PictoChat, but mobile phones are typically 'application challenged'... so it's good to see one making headway with such rudimentary apps.

the future of mobile

Mobile phone technology is advancing rapidly, but what can people expect to be using in 2015? What will their mobile be able to do and what will it look like? Nokia has collaborated with Industrial Design students from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London to come up with some ideas.


New ideas in mobile... one interesting design completly ripped off Ruth Kikin-Gil's Buddy Beads from last year, which is pretty sad...

Buddy Beads are a bit hard to explain, but lets just say it will revolutionize what 'mobile phones' are perceived to be to teen and tween girls in a few years.

Oh man, I so want this phone. Ever since my unhealthy obsession with dressing like a G.I. Joe since I was a kid (I even have the offical fan club A team medal to prove it), this will be the most perfect accessory ever made...

Only available in Japan now in frikin FOMA, I'll have wait for the GSM version, to find one on the grey market somewhere (eBay . . .)

iRiver v10 (aka Eye Poker)

Nice Nice Nice, Really good to see DMB devices (that aren't phones), but there is damn near no memory, and what the hell is up with that antenna.

One can only pray, that what I have been predicting apple will do, is an iPod Video with S-DMB. And if they go the way of the Korean phones, it could also be your mobile set top box too. Everyone keeps thinking that their talks with Sirius are about radio, it is still amazing people aren't putting 2 and 2 together on this.

This would absolutely spell the death of mobile phone video and launch a serious (no pun intended) revolution that should have started last year.

Augmented Reality ... Finally

 Category: mobile
Posted: 2006-03-07 13:52, Edited: 2006-03-07 16:52

http://www.mobilitysite.com/blogimages/artoolkitplus_Smartphone-thumb.jpg

"The basic idea of Augmented Reality (AR) is that is lets people share an extended version of the "real" world. Virtual objects can show up in real space that can be viewed an manipulated by more than one person (which is often a problem in Virtual Reality)."

I have been talking about this for years, since the late 80's infact. I'm surprised it took so long for someone to get it done.

It really kills me that I never had teh time to do, as it could have been failry easily hacked out with GPS, and some VR glasses or and HMD, using CDs to hold the data on where objects should appear in space.

I hate commercials as much as the next guy, but this could have a MAJOR effect on advertising, like nothing the world has seen. Take for instance if McDonalds wanted to plot direction to their nearest location and hovered teh golden arches 20 feet above that locations, while giving you arrows two feet in front of you on how to get thier... absolutly amaizing.

T-Mobile USA, Free WiFi to Mobile Phone Subscribers

 Category: mobile
Posted: 2006-03-06 19:05, Edited: 2006-03-06 22:05

Hot Damn! Just launched... Nice to see them promoting their WiFi. Ever since they skipped out on the 3G/EVDO etc mobile boom, I think they have been feeling a little sheepish. This will change when all these companies have to show their P&L for 2006 tanking like the Hindenberg, and people start adopting WiFi phones for short distance communications.

In their words:

Here's one more reason to love the weekend and T-Mobile.

It's your chance to surf the web, check your e-mail, download music, share pictures and more from your Wi-Fi enabled laptop, PDA, or cell phone. All at blazing fast wireless broadband speeds, from thousands of convenient T-Mobile HotSpot locations around the country, for FREE. Limited Time Promotion.

The "Death" of Mobile...

Well not really (but one can hope..). Anyway... Bloody Mobile is a new mobile "venture" that plays to the morbid kind. Tons of almost great ringtones, like "Shotgun Spree" and "Summon Demons" (which should have really been the last Bush speech) as well as Videos, Games, and Wallpapers of the living dead and goth chics to boot.

Most of it is pretty lame right now, but I can see this growing into something much bigger. And if the play their cards right, they could really create a niche for themselves that would make them the dominant force. They need to get in bed with more classics and more film types, like Bova, Argento, Miike etc, to get the cult following that will make the rest follow. Or even the recent Hostel, by Eli "Pancakes" Roth.

Now if only someone will start the cable channel that plays International Horror Films 24/7, and they can even play The Munsters and Casper in the early hours for the kiddies...
