Nokia geeks might just remember Nokia Friend View, an experimental research project that has been discontinued last September. Take a look at what Nokia has done with all those data collected during the experiment; come and take a look at Routinely. Read on for more.
Nokia is up to something. Take a look at Routinely, a visualization application that maps activities and status updates
What is Routinely?
“…an experimental visualization built to abstractly present global activity. The project was motivated by an observation that many users update their friends about their current activity and location. Routinely considered some common activities such as working, eating, recreation, etc.. Aggregating messages by activity, time and location, gives a small glimpse of the range of activities people are engage in, all around the world…”
Even though Nokia Friend View is no longer around, Nokia today basically has access to more data via their Nokia Ovi applications and services. I really have no idea what Nokia has in store for users in the future (wait… Nokia did give us some clues… Come and see what Nokia has in store in 2015!) but I got this feeling that we will see apps in the likes of Routinely one day, perhaps scaled down to reflect activities done in regions, cities or neighborhood blocks.
