A first demo of Hybrid Earth, bring your laptops and android devices to join us.
Hybrid Earth is a scenario based on the idea that, in a near future, smartphones will be augmented reality goggles with embedded cameras (à la google glass devices). These many geolocated cameras and other sensors help in building a mirror world (think streetview), a realtime copy of our physical world accessible through the web.
The mirror world is populated with data, avatars and bots that are visible through the augmented reality goggles. A world this size –as big as the real world and the web combined– can only be built with the contribution of everyone on top of an open and scalable infrastructure.
