Mobile is My Time Machine

PhiladelphiaYesterday I had the awesome opportunity to go to Philadelphia for the first time ever. An amazing city; rich with history and stories. I stumbled around for about 4 hours, combing the historic district mainly, walking by Betsy Ross’s house, Ben Franklin’s grave, the Liberty Bell. While being excited about walking the footsteps of our forefathers, I felt a bit unease with my experience. I wanted so much more. I wanted to see what the city looked like in the days of our country’s creation, I wanted to be immersed in the happenings during the Revolutionary war, I wanted to connect with the environment around me both in the present as well as the past.

Why can’t I? With the technologies that we have available in our pockets, we should be able to match up historic events, images, stories, with our location and interaction to provide a deeper experience with, not only space, but time. An immersive tour, rather than an audio tour.

Imagine if this connection was made… Not just physical with digital, but with past, present & future.

Imagine if this connection was made… Not just physical with digital, but with past, present & future. Instead of promising the future, you show the future. Instead of talking about the past you experience it. Who thought that mobile phones would be our own personal time machine? Well, not yet anyway.
