Augmented Sound/Data "Visualization"

A Sound Based Augmented Reality App

Done under Prof Golan Levin.

Augmented Reality is usually thought of as a visual thing, and typically so is the "visualization" of data. But this does not need to be the case, and often is not. In this project, I tried my hands at two things, firstly, trying to understand/augment our environment through sound, and secondly, learn Android App Development & Java.

This project is an app that plays a particular note based on your GPS location, allowing for you to "record" your journeys, and see what they sound like.

I asked some of my friends to record their commutes from home, here's what I got:

Here's what the app looks like, the design has been kept minimal.
