Media2Go: transmitting different levels of content from digital signs to
cell phones (circa 2002)
Media2Go allows you to implicitly or explicitly download content from
external sources such as digital signs onto your cell phone. The user
can receive a menu of content listings immediately, and then explicitly
download more and more content, depending on how long they want to
wait. For example, the lowest level might be a url and some text,
followed by the next level, thumbnails and finally a full video.
To experiment with automatic downloading (a sort of sensory capture of
where you went and when), you can also pick up things as you walk by
(complete with a time-stamp and theoretical GPS location). If you stand
near something longer, you can get more information.
