Augmented Reality

„Get in Contact” is a conceptual approach, enhancing face to face communication by adding digital information about us around us via smartphone and AR glasses. Giving people an idea about who we are and what we want to share. A starting point for any sort of social interaction.

Besides input and computing device for the glasses, the smartphone also serves as an ID for the user carrying it around. Users should be able to rely solely on the information projected on the glasses, to keep the focus on the people instead on their information, which if too complex can be checked on the smartphone itself.

One main feature of “Get in Contact” is the status message, social networks like facebook made popular and frequently used. Short informative updates about ourselves, asking for reactions by others, floating above the users’ heads.

Even people who managed to stay away from social networking sites and prefer regular social interactions could benefit from this kind of system, cause in the end it’s more about getting to know the people around us instead of collecting profiles in the web.
