Ghosts of the Past

Groups

What if you could see what the past looked like from where you are standing? What if you could relive any event that happened at your current location? Rather than just reading about an event, we want to be immersed in it and experience it ourselves. Ghosts of the Past allows you to create, save, and geotag panoramic canopies. Anyone who subsequently visits that space can see what you have seen, joining with you to create time-lapsed socialization. Since each canopy is time-stamped and geotagged, it gives the user an anchor in space while they explore history. Any event, special or mundane, can be captured for anyone in the same location to view. QR codes are posted in building locations with an active canopy.
