I came across this cool product announcement by Foursquare a couple of days ago: ‘Introducing Marsbot for AirPods, a new app that explores what is possible with audio AR. Think of it as a proactive walking assistant.’
‘We are looking at headphones as widely-used augmented reality hardware. Marsbot for AirPods is a lightweight virtual assistant that proactively whispers local recommendations (and other fun snippets) into your headphones or earbuds as you’re walking around. We’ll pause your podcast and lower your music while we whisper something (and we’ll never interrupt a voice or video call).’ The content is both, native foursquare content and UGC, new content that has been recorded by users using Marsbot.
