MessageMe is a real-time, location-based messaging system for the MIT Media Lab. Users compose messages that are delivered as recipients are detected at specified locations in the Lab. MessageMe builds on the Media Lab Glass Infrastructure, utilizing the RFID readers at each kiosk to determine users' locations. GI Mobile is a mobile application that acts as a companion to the Glass Infrastructure. It incorporates the MessageMe messaging system to deliver a suite of location-aware features that complement the Glass Infrastructure. These include locating others in the Lab, browsing projects by location, and sending location-triggered messages. In addition, GI Mobile generates project recommendations based on other projects a user has "liked." It will alert users as they pass by recommended projects, helping visitors explore the plethora of projects at the Media Lab.
