FEATURED APPLICATION: MIDTOWN BUZZ MOBILE 


Midtown Buzz Mobile is a mobile gateway to a variety of Midtown applications. Embedded in the site are mixed reality experiences, leveraging local ‘taste makers’ who tell the stories of the neighborhood. What will be built on that empty lot? See the architect’s rendering of the new building. Have a day to explore? Follow the recommendations of Atlanta Bike Coalition. The site incorporates web elements in an augmented reality browser to give users an inside look at some of the stories and developments in the Midtown area. You can view videos, articles, photos, and other media presented over a 360 degree panorama of Midtown locations. If you're at the locations featured, you can turn off the provided panorama image and experience the augmented reality with your device's real view camera.
