Our phones collect information from us and our surroundings: all the time, sometimes or on request. In order to get access to some of that data we have to give explicit permission (e.g. GPS[[GPS|Global Positioning System]], microphone, camera) but others can be fetched by the browser or apps without noticing.
For this project I want to visualize some of that “hidden data”, creating a generative image in real time using today’s web technologies. This so generated image should simulate the phones camera view in a lo fi way.
as input serves one or multiple mobile devices. on a simple one page they see what data they send. the following data is grabbed:
Through the websockets protocol, the data from the mobile devices is transfered in nearly realtime to the node.js server
the data from the input sources is send to a server and gets visualised in two ways.
