Locast – location based narrowcasting / distributed television
July 23rd, 2009

I just got a a glimpse at the future of context aware, location based video broadcasting with a project called Locast from the MIT Mobile Experience Lab.  My initial rection to Locast was to contemplate how this project could be used to enhance citizen-media scenarios.  Upon further investigation it became apparent to me that the premise of this project is to find ways augment the physical environment with location-based media. This is the future starring at us in the face!  I am flabergasted!  Great job MIT MEL
