Enter eyeBeacon, a creation conceptualized and developed at the recent PennApps college hackathon. Powered by Rasberry Pi, this Google Glass hack offers a hyperlocal augmented reality experience and a digital payments option via Venmo so that both locals and tourists can enjoy new locations around the world easily and seamlessly.
