Demo of the screen experience for the proximeter, a wall instrument that tracks the past and future proximity of people and things. More than just telling you where people are right now, the proximeter tells you where people will be traveling, by subscribing to their online calendar and Dopplr feeds. With a Twitter account, the instrument can also use other services to track people and objects through space and time, such as shipping packages or touring bands.
A research project of the Information Ecology group at the MIT Media Lab. Under commercial development. More at johnkestner.com/proximeter
