INSPIRATION

Its great timing for this because the hardware is to productize this is becoming more available.

  • I say launch FAST and iterate thats really the only way to do anything these days
  • To prototype we can build something that just increases beeps the closer you are to an object, similar to how a lot of backup systems on cars work, they keep beeping the closer you are to an obstacle.
  • Build that and then lets get some funding to build a real device that would deal with the 3D mapping and converting that to a soundscape.
  • Since its for a good cause I’m sure we can drum up some sort of sponsorship. We are actually thinking of making that a feature in Collaborizm anyways.

As far as GPS, I don’t think it would be sensitive enough for walking.

Yes, I agree GPS is not very accurate. Actually, my idea was to give user a sense of localization, he should know where he is and in which direction he should be moving either to get to a specific location or what are the possible directions he can move and (later) where does each of direction lead.

As for assisting him in walking, I was planning on integrating this once I am done with the maps implementation as I felt we will face much noise and challenges in integrating real world data compared to digital maps data.

What do you think…?

Got it! Much easier and more useful then what I was thinking, lets do it.

either should we dive into building our first prototype or start with some documentation, minimal feasibility and mocks?

So from an architecture point of view lets make a server that will for given clients return the points of interest and proximity data.
