Audio AR

Using AR for wayfinding is something that many AEC industry apps tap into: we are familiar with vision-based apps that overlay arrows onto real-world cityscapes, providing us with directions on how to get to a particuarly building, or how to reach a building exit (as in Copenhagen airport). In industries where visual data dominates, this app is a refreshing reminder that our other senses can be 'augmented' as well.  HeareApp is an application that augments audio information with the real world ambient noise to create accessible paths for visually impaired users. Auditory and haptic overlays can expand the possibilities - and understanding- of space for developers, designers and the end users of these new AR experiences.
