Data, data everywhere – and which belongs to you?

Open data, ubiquitous technology, and contextual personalized augmentation lead to one very enriched user experience.  This app takes publically available data on webcams and other camerad devices, combines it with your current location, and augments your visual perception of the world with it. The result: data, put in context in real time, letting you make more informed decisions on what behaviour may be acceptable where.

I'm not saying that you should change your behaviour depending on whether a camera is watching or not. But there isn't anything wrong with being more aware about what information is being captured when: at the end of the day, you are responsible for your own data, and with technology moving more and more into everyday applications and locations, from RFID tags on clothing to webcams and Google Glass, this presents an excellent opportunity to understand the consequences – and learn how to interact with – an interconnected world to obtain the outcomes you want.
